Living Table is a compassionate community drawn together in Christ to embody love, seek justice, and invite healing.

We are W.I.S.E. which means that we are welcoming, inclusive, supportive, and engaged with persons who have mental health challenges

We believe in just peace which means that world peace will be achieved through justice for all

We are open and affirming which means that we welcome QT (queer and/or trans) people intentionally, and people of all gender identities and sexual orientations

We strive to be anti-racist which means we commit to seeking and supporting racial justice for all peoples

We believe that God is still speaking in sacred and contemporary texts and through creation itself

Broken, Exposed, Resurrected: A 12-Step Journey thru Lent: Week 3

Acceptance of our selves and all that has made us into who we are, can be a challenge. Inviting God into the hard places and the pain, can make it a bit easier.

We are all God's beloved.

Unknowing is often uncomfortable. We are invited into the Mystery that is God, and we are wrapped in Love.
