Bible Says What?! Interpretations and Translations
It is estimated that there have been over 900 English translations of the Bible. So who gets to pick the words in the Bible? And who determines what they mean? Compare, contrast and explore together.

If the Bible were an HBO Mini-series…

Connected and Unique
There are an estimated 4,200 different religions and 34,000 different Christian denominations in the world! What does it mean to be a person of faith in a pluralistic world?
The Blessing of Diversity
God created a diverse world and declared it good! God created a diverse people and declared us good! So why are so many folks trying to make everything the same? From biodiversity to cultural expression to gender identity, and everything in between, how do we faithfully live into our good and diverse identities in God's good and diverse world? And assure others have the chance to do so as well.
How to Be An Advocate
Love your neighbor as yourself. We all have the ability to influence the world around us. Some of us have more opportunity to exercise that ability than others. So how can we faithfully live into our God given gifts in a way that enables others to live into theirs?
Meditation and Mindfulness
"My peace I give you." - Jesus Some days it doesn't feel that way. And yet, peace is the promise. So how can the practices of faith ground and center us in the midst of uncertainty and anxiety? How does faith inspire us to peace, even in the midst of chaos?
