What does it mean to curate a liberating space open to questions and curiosity? A sacred space, filled with stories, reflective of ourselves and others that encourages help and hope? This a question on the minds of spiritual and civic leaders, homeschooling parents, counselors, educators, caregivers and neighbors alike. Common to human nature is a desire for connection…community. Sociologist Linda Bergquist suggests, “persons share in common a need for portals and/or motivations of entry into communal circles.”
Community is shaped in shared identity, space, relations and liminal experiences often by way of “gathering”. Living Tree believes values the idea of community. Our team works diligently to design and celebrate all manner of ways to “gather”. We are committed to facilitating space, people and work that embodies our aim: doing life together rooted in love…growing through faith…thriving in divine purpose.
In this season of both imposed “social” distancing let us commit to exploring more deeply ourselves while seeking to grow closer to each other in faith.
