I am very excited to be part of The Land community. My vision for a spiritual community, values relationships over ritual and service over sacraments. I try to focus my spiritual journey on God’s love for all of creation and I see western Christianity’s development of a transactional relationship with God as a tragic misinterpretation.
I also think it might be useful to replace the word “salvation” in the “Christian” context, with the word “enlightenment”. I think enlightenment is what Jesus was encouraging, as the ongoing process of ever-widening the Christian experience to include more of creation. Enlightenment also emphasizes the ongoing nature of this process.
I look forward to sharing a variety of spiritual ideas with friends who call The Land their spiritual home as we strive to share God’s love with each other and the world.
