Spiritual Communities

Does it seem like everyone in your spiritual community is too busy? Does it feel as if your faith community is increasingly pushed to the margins, irrelevant in the lives of the people in the pews and your local area? Are you tired of trying the next new program with little enthusiasm and meaningful difference in people’s lives? For over 80 years, Lumunos has partnered with faith communities as they seek to support people for living from a sense of call in the midst of daily life. Lumunos believes that the primary purpose of organizations like churches, synagogues, and mosques is to equip people for faithful living in the world. Spiritual communities that support people’s calling are more relevant because:

  • Call begins with the particularities of people’s lives. That is where God is at work. There is nothing more relevant than that!
  • Call addresses our busy-ness. Discerning God’s call helps us prioritize, spending time on the activities that matter most, and setting down those pursuits that are not ours to do at this time.
  • Discerning call brings meaning and purpose to our lives. Call starts with our own life and connects us with something much larger than ourselves–God’s vision and hope for the world.

“When two people relate to each other authentically and humanely, God is the electricity that surges between them.” —Martin Buber
