We believe that through liturgy, contemplation, and community, God transforms lives for bold faith, compassionate service and social justice.
We are profoundly intentional about what we do here because what we do here
Is we co-create a space, a place that allows
belief and bewilderment,
hope and hesitation
statement and question,
faith and not-yet-faith
to mix and mingle
without assumption or judgment.
Nathan Kirkpatrick, Pastor in Residence.
Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honour. Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers.Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly; do not claim to be wiser than you are. Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all. If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.
Romans 12: 9-18

The Advocate is called to pioneer. Pioneering strips you down to basics. Certainly, up to now, the Advocate’s life-style has been materially minimalist–life without clutter, only what we can carry, only what can fit into those ever-so-well-organized plastic boxes. But travelling light is an outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual strip-down: a back-to-basics willingness to strip away smoothing disguises and to stay in touch with raw realities; a disciplined commitment to live without masks. The Rev. Marilyn McCord Adams in her sermon, Building Basics.
