Being a witness is “living out” one’s call to be a disciple of Jesus in everything you say and do. The Gathering is committed to being a witnessing community!
As disciples of Christ we are called to be daily witnesses for the one we call our Crucified Lord.
In the midst of a busy and chaotic world, it can be difficult to find inner peace. However, through meditation, mindfulness practices, and connecting with nature, it is possible to cultivate a sense of calm and tranquility.
Forgiveness can be a difficult and challenging process, but it is also incredibly powerful. By letting go of anger and resentment, we can free ourselves from negative emotions and move forward with compassion and understanding.
Gratitude is a powerful emotion that can shift our perspective and help us find joy in even the smallest things. By cultivating a sense of gratitude, we can increase our overall happiness and well-being.
Taking care of ourselves is essential for our physical, emotional, and spiritual health. This can include practices such as exercise, healthy eating, and self-reflection.
The path to self-discovery can be a lifelong journey. By exploring our beliefs, values, and passions, we can gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and our place in the world.
Connection with others is essential for our well-being. Whether through community, friendship, or romantic relationships, human connection can provide us with support, love, and a sense of belonging.

I am a second career person who came to the church through a conversion experience in the late summer of 2003. I grew up in a family of artists and writers and was a practicing artist for over 20 years. Call it Epiphany or a complete transformation, but God spoke to me ...
I was raised in a very reformed (the least strict) Jewish home. I only attended Sunday School until I was in third grade. That was the extent of my religious teaching until I left for college and tried to learn more about Judaism and find faith...
