it is reverent and rooted in ancient practices
yet with a relevant message for today.
amid distractions and loss of authentic connection
we treasure a communal gathering
in real time and sacred space.
all are welcome without exception.
we celebrate the diversity of the human family
we value authenticity.
as God’s people
in our families, workplaces,
schools, and neighborhoods.
as an urban congregation
we have a heart for the city,
a passion for justice,
an openness to questioning,
a deep reverence for the earth,
the wonder of life,
and the presence of God in suffering and joy.
