Let's begin with some honesty...
There is a lot out there right now: a pandemic, climate change, racial injustice.
There's a lot here too: classes, tests, relationships, work.
We are carrying a lot and it's not clear where the path leads.
So what's in your backpack? Do you have what you need to be sustained on this journey? What might you need to pick up? What should you take out and leave behind?
Lumin is a faith community where you can wrestle with life's big questions and travel with other folks on the journey. We are a community gathered around the life and teaching of Jesus, a wandering rabbi who walked with people at the margins and challenged the power of those at the center.
We try to follow his lead and center his teachings of dignity and liberation for all. We celebrate and affirm lbgtq+ folks. We believe racial justice is holy work. And we believe the Earth is sacred, and we need to heal our relationship with her.
We believe there is a lot of hard and beautiful work to do, and weed need to listen to the quiet, gentle voice of the Spirit so we be be filled with hope and love, so we can build a future for all of us, together.
If this sounds like a place for you, come check us out.
ps If you dig the metaphor we are working with here, it's an idea we are running with the first month or so of worship. 7:07 Sunday nights at the Common Ground Building.
