Life is full of mystery and an invitation to encounter and journey.
We are invited to relationship and engagement with mystery.

The Wisdom of God keeps calling us into a forever unfolding mystery of Life and Love.
The Holy Spirit guides us to an ever-increasing insight and broadening of our understanding of revelation.

The Holy Spirit keeps calling us forth beyond our personal and cultural limitations into deeper wisdom and insight as we engage in harmony with the rhythm and the dance of life.
