Spiritual & Ethical Formation

Souls & Solidarity

From our congregation’s energy, enthusiasm, and longing, we developed a consistent space and time to learn and grow into being a place of spiritual activism and liberative gathering, built from an anti-racist foundation. The text, Liberating Church, is our guide, which lifts up eight “marks” or values of a liberated and liberating community. The text and our sources foreground Black church experience and wisdom, drawing from the hush harbor of the antebellum south, when enslaved persons created alternative ways of being in Christian communities.

As a diverse community, but one that still operates as a white space in many ways, we understand that we are still becoming, still learning and still unlearning in order to be a more liberated and liberating space. We intend to learn from the wisdom of these sources, but not take their struggle as our own when it is not. All are encouraged to join this important work. For more information contact Pastor Lea.
