Vision, Goals, and Purpose:
Our unifying vision, the idea that helps to focus all our activities, is:
“The community of [STREAM] participants will be able to see their world anew as a place in which their gifts and faith perspectives contribute to transforming the world for good.”
At STREAM, we will become a community together. In order to create safe enough space to be our genuine selves and explore our real questions, we will create covenants that will guide the ways we relate to each other. In all that we do, an awareness of the sacred worth of each beloved child of God is the starting point. Each of us has a unique story of the life we have experienced to this point. We each bring our own perspectives and opinions. We are all somewhere on a faith journey, and there are many ways faithful people live their faith. As we gather for these seven days of STREAM, we know God will be present with us. Our task is to listen for God, to look for God, and to be God’s hands and feet for each other and our world.
