Knowledge & News
Thought provoking topics and series, necessary news and information.
This fall we're crowd-sourcing our vision as a way of orienting our path for the next leg of the journey. Compass will be a season of weekly feedback (in person and online) from anyone whom identifies as a part of Collective (Sunday night, community groups, Sunday Soul Brunch, online community, youtube channel and podcast subscribers, downtown partners and business owners, social media communities and you!) and would invest some time and intentional reflection in helping us shape a meaningful future.
Simply respond weekly to the open ended questions below. We'll accept feedback between Sunday at 5PM and Wednesday at Noon. Then we'll publish the summarized findings within a couple of days. Each week's feedback will shape and hone the questions and the process in the following weeks.
This is participatory. We can't do this without you.
“Collective would be a space for healing and wellness.” There is an allowance from within the congregation to be a skeptic, to ask questions, and still hold so much trust with the community and space. Going forward, Collective would be “intentionally open and accessible to as many as possible.”
“A church is just people. It needs the community to form.”
“It takes 40 days to get the people out of Egypt, but it takes 40 years
to get Egypt out of the people.”
“Maybe the thing that you need to be courageous in is
changing your desire to change.”
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.
