Our Journey Together

Program Note:  Obviously, these are not "normal" times we live in (not that there ever is a one-size-fits-all "normal").  Covid-19 has altered the way we look at the world and the way we build and maintain community.  Educational, social, and service opportunities have been shifted to meet the safety needs in the age of physical distancing & masks.  Please know that all efforts -- present and future -- will always make the well-being of those who participate, and the greater community, the highest priority.  But as true today as in the past -- we welcome you -- a mask and a distance of several feet will never alter that truth.  Be well!!!

The philosophy behind adult program explorations...

Faith is a journey with many names.  Some religious, some not.  We all seek meaning and purpose in this life.  The ageless questions -- "why are we here" and "how best to meet each day" -- can pull us in many directions.  It can be a lonely endeavor, bouncing from the various roles we play in a world that often does not support our asking "big" questions.  This faith community offers a safe place to share your journey with others who are also pondering this mystery of life -- the journey of being human.  We are not here to think alike, we are here to think, act, and care together.  We learn from each other.  And it's in the questions we ask -- not the answers (if any) -- that we build our deepest relationships.

Sunday mornings 9:45 - 11:15 a.m. currently via Zoom

 

Life presents us with challenges on many levels -- the personal, the communal, and the cultural.  How best to respond given our diverse experiences and world views?  Sharing our individual perspectives in a supportive gathering, let's listen and learn from each other as we explore the issues of our lives and times.   During the particular strains of pandemic and economic loss, we also provide a space to share our stress, anxiety, and primal screams.  Our disussion is not an exercise in agreement, but in building realtionships that lead to trust -- and meaningful action.  All welcome.

Playing With Others...

 

Food Halls & Faith

 

Currently looking forward to the day we can revisit our small business friends & fellowship over diverse meal options in these wonderful venues.

 

One of the better community-driven trends in our market-based culture is the contemporary "food hall." 

Take an old building (abandoned store or warehouse), add food & retail niches run by local creative souls, toss in open seating

and you have a social, bread-breaking space where conversations begin and relationships form.

Cultural Escapes

 

Art, lectures, natural history, gardens -- all the joys of Metro Denver culture -- it will resume & we will be ready...

Hope is like peace. 

It is not a gift from God. 

It is a gift only we can give one another.
