Convergence practices an intentional rhythm of song, scripture, silence, art making and communal prayer. Our lives are consumed by noise and updates and opinions and tasks, and we often insulate ourselves against a noisy internal dialogue because we are afraid of what might be discovered in silence.
For those who can enter into a shared silence, the benefits are exponential. Our community serves to build a safe, fertile space for this intimate experience of prayer and reflection. We discover more of God and ourselves in this encounter and leave knowing a deeper, truer connection to a God is expansive enough to supply all of our needs and is small enough to meet with us in stillness and quiet.
Going online has allowed us to share the kinds of experiences we enjoy regularly as a small group with more people in a variety of locations. It has shown us there is a hunger for bridging creativity and the spiritual life and a desire for training and discipleship in these ways. In addition to our online expansion, we are excited about using all we learned from the “Gather 2019” study to re-invent our in-person activities. Looking towards a “spiritual gym” model of church, we will create opportunities through out the week to “workout” together in prayer, worship, creative projects, fun activities and training.
