From the moment we first encounter the Spirit moving over the waters of creation, a journey of exploration begins. We are journeying from a garden to a city and are therefore pilgrim explorers by design. The idea of exploring is a key one for our community, and in trying to describe our way of navigating life we find ourselves drawn to themes of journey and possibility.
We understand that the process of becoming Christian is a lifetime’s endeavour. Our sense is that, as a small child learns to speak, so the following of Christ is not so much taught as absorbed. It seeps into us as we spend more time in the company of Christ and of this surprising group of people trying to follow him. So the key way to learn in community – whether it be about Christianity in general or following Jesus in our company – is simply to spend time together.
