WELCOME
we are in the season of Advent

Welcome to the Convergence Community website.  While we obviously encourage you to look around, view the pictures of community life, and read about the ongoing conversations we are having.  However, nothing can tell you more about Convergence than experiencing life within our community.  We welcome you to a Sunday Gathering (5pm most Sunday nights) or a weekly Neighborhood Meal.  We can write some pretty lofty things about community life but, our greatest hope is to live them out.

ADVENT READINGS
This advent season we are considering the relationship between and among COMPLEXITY, MYSTERY AND HOPE. Hope isn’t a juvenile practice of ignoring what is hard or intricate about life. Hope is not a practice in ignoring the parts of life we want to evacuate from. But what is hope? And how can we live within hope? (By no means is this a how - to - hope seasonal guide) but it does ask a few honest questions. Check out our further PDF of questions and readings for the Advent season.


 
 
The purpose of an evolutionary spirituality is to teach people how to envision the future that God envisions for creation and to choose to bring it about. It is summed up in the not-yet question you may ask yourself each year and each day: “What will I make my life about?
— Louis Savary on Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
