Kaleen shares how her work as a nurse practitioner and midwife in Haiti has inspired her, how Collective has supported her by making space, and how we'll be able to further fund her efforts in the coming year through the 2018 pledge drive.
My name is Lisa, and this is my husband, Crenshaw. We’ve been coming to Collective for just over one and one-half years. Last year at this time, we had some medical stuff to deal with and we weren’t making it here very often. We were so glad that we could watch on You Tube, because Ben was doing a series then based on the book of 1st John called “Love Letter.” We really enjoyed that series and that theme, so we decided to bring it back this year with our own “Love Letter” to Collective…
Bill, Renee and Ryan McCullough lived the life they were given. They weren’t scared to die because they were too busy living! Loving deeply, giving themselves generously, and serving others selflessly. Showing us what lives of significance look like. We’re here to celebrate the life and mourn the death of our friends and loved ones, dear to those here today and so many more near and far.
We are a misfit faith community that gathers in DeLand on Sundays at 5pm. Come as you are.
We value highly the metaphor of journey. We’re different people from different places and backgrounds, representing an intergenerational community, and we’ve traveled different paths. So, we agree not to make assumptions about the person across from us, next to us, or in conversation with us. We challenge ourselves to be sensitive, knowing this community includes a diverse group of people from life-long followers of Jesus, to people who are just now open to the idea that God might exist. We strive to avoid offense, ask good questions, articulate and explain our responses. We don’t assume fluency in bible, spirituality, or Church language, because we believe the message of Jesus is not for Christianity, but for humanity. So, we do everything in the spirit of love and grace.
