This week we celebrate Earth Day, which gave us a unique opportunity to pause this past Sunday to consider the relationship between our faith and the earth, as well as to celebrate the goodness of God's good world. In addition to exciting new music, moving meditations and a Eucharistic connection with the soil, we had the treat of learning from life-long environmentalist and spiritual practitioner, Jora Young. She shared a bit of her story, her life practice and her unique blend of eco-spirituality.
"All I could think about tonight were the ways Jora's talk clashed with the version of Christianity I grew up with..."

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.
