The principles of Communities of Shalom are as applicable in a rural context as they are in an urban neighborhood. In a town of 1400 people, Mason Caregivers Shalom Community is fostering unity, promoting education and dreaming of so much more.
Pastor Billy Jo Jackson embraces the notion that everyone has gifts and skills to share. Nearly breaking into a sermon from the stage of the first annual Mason Unity Festival, Pastor Jackson encouraged the hundreds gathered to complete a survey of their gifts.
“Together, connecting our gifts and skills, we are going to make Mason a stronger community!”
In the video below, Pastor Jackson shares how he builds upon what he learns and experiences through Center for Transforming Communities to seek the shalom of Mason.
