A New Gathering! The term “edge walker” is used by Victoria Loorz, co-founder of the Wild Church Network to describe how she views herself as one who wanders along the hemlines of the “Christ tradition.” Victoria invites us to consider whether we also are an edge walker and acknowledges that “Edge walkers occupy a thin space and are by definition a bit lonely.” *
We extend an open invitation to the Stillpoint Community to attend our first and, hopefully, quarterly gathering/s entitled “Nourishing Edge Walkers”. Our intention for this gathering/s is to provide a casual structure to nurture and nourish each other on our journey deeper into the “thin spaces.”
These informal gatherings will provide time and space to listen and share what is most alive in us. Our time together will allow space for a personal sharing about a poem, a book, insights/challenges that arose from an experience or whatever the Spirit stirs in you to share. We will conclude our time with a community meal. A hearty soup, bread, cheese and crackers will be provided. Other contributions are welcome but not necessary.
