  • We arrive at decisions through a discernment process, listening to the Spirit speaking in the individual and in the group. Our lifestyles are marked by profound simplicity and consciousness of the earth.
  • We acknowledge our global interdependence.
  • We gather together to affirm and support one another.
  • We empower each other to accountability and challenge each other to act.
  • We break open the Word together, share prayer, share a meal and enjoy one another’s company.
  • We are people of wisdom.
  • We relate with freedom and responsibility and are present to each other in our brokenness.
  • We communicate with each other in an atmosphere of trust, honesty, and mutual support. Our dialogue is permeated by an attitude of openness and a belief in continual conversion.
