We Stand with Love: Middle clergy, staff, and colleagues helped spread a message of love through We Stand with Love. Week 8: Love Wins includes stories, devotionals, reflections, and prayer from Jacqui Lewis and others at Middle.

Together Tour: This fall, Senior Minister Jacqui Lewis took Middle’s theology of “Love.Period.” on the road at the "Together" tour in six cities across the U.S.: Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Denver, and Portland. In each city, Jacqui, founder Glennon Doyle Melton, internationally celebrated yoga teacher Seane Corn, and activist filmmaker Valarie Kaur offered inspiring storytelling. At BAM in Brooklyn, special guest Alicia Keys took the stage and performed a capella.
