VIA DE CRISTO'S WAYS
Though not now meeting regularly, Via de Cristo Faith Community is been a warm and inclusive, theologically progressive, Christian gathering, open to inter-tradition dialogue and exploration .
We embrace a premise that differs from most. Though we share a Christian heritage, we acknowledge that an active, inner faith walk is ultimately a deeply individual and evolving thing. In that light, rather than gathering around specific sets of creeds or doctrines, our common experience is thoughtful and inquiring spiritual life, and understandings that are still evolving, and often quite individual in specifics.
So what draws us together lies not so much in what we believe, but in affirming a simpler, more heart-experienced and compassionate way of being in this world, "...acting justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with our God." [cf. Micah 6:8].
We enjoy walking together with our deeper spiritual conversations and questions, exploring, ruminating and learning, ...enriched by the sharing of our individual and varied faith journeys.
Individually and in community, we draw the circle larger to make a difference in the troubles of our world, making lives a little easier, ...making futures a little brighter for some who are disadvantaged, homeless, or refugees.
