Spirituality is a way of being. It is a journey. At National Avenue Christian Church, we pursue a new kind of progressive spirituality. We embrace traditional worship, but we encourage doubt and informality. We raise intellectual questions, but we thrive on authenticity and honesty. We root ourselves in the richness of the Christian tradition, and we recognize God’s truth in all its diverse forms. We’re not afraid to be imperfect. The truth is, there is no one path, but we all walk together. Wherever you are on your faith journey, you’ll find a place here.
We have several new opportunities for spiritual formation coming. Here are some highlights:
Spiritual Formation Opportunities Abound In the New Year!
In the start of the new year we invite you join us as we explore John Phillip Newell’s The Rebirthing of God. In the midst of dramatic changes in Western Christianity, internationally respected spiritual leader, peacemaker and scholar John Philip Newell offers the hope of a fresh stirring of the Spirit among us. He invites us to be part of a new holy birth of sacred living. Speaking directly to the heart of Christians those within the well-defined bounds of Christian practice and those on the disenchanted edges as well as to the faithful and seekers of other traditions, he explores major features of a new birthing of Christianity:
Coming back into relationship with the Earth as sacred
Reconnecting with compassion as the ground of true relationship
Celebrating the Light that is at the heart of all life
Reverencing the wisdom of other religious traditions
Rediscovering spiritual practice as the basis for transformation
Living the way of nonviolence among nations
Following love as the seed-force of new birth in our lives and world
Join us for Disciples on the Edge each Sunday as we explore these features of Christianity.
