Intentions

Our intention is to engage the hearts and minds of those present in finding the divine in each other and in all things, to inspire and enliven local movements and communities, to celebrate, play, and co-create a deeper vision for the future of a new Christianity and spirituality as a whole. We aim to raise consciousness, build bridges toward unity and sacred oneness, and eradicate the illusion of separation from each other. We invite participants to be open to new music, new liturgies, and new ideas that inspire hopefulness about the future. We invite participants to embrace a global community of people who will share in inspiration and knowledge. It is our intention that practical guidance will be offered so that we might heal ourselves, our communities, and the planet in on-going ways moving forward.
