In this season, we are “making the road by walking”—following an invitation to walk together through the whole story of God’s hopes and dreams for creation, seen through the lens of the Christian tradition. Using the structure suggested by a recently-published book by Brian McLaren, we are going back to the beginning, trying to re-capture what Christianity looked like before it was a rich and powerful religion, before it had buildings and budgets and institution-sustaining agenda. We join a movement of progressive Christians all over the world who are seeking to re-make what it means to be the Church.

Stunning! Incredible! Beautiful! Wow! These exclamations may still be reverberating within the Halls of Justice as they were echoed over and over again by visitors who attended the opening of Transformation: Art from Within, an exhibit displaying a collection of artwork created by women and men incarcerated at the Elmwood Correctional Facility in Milpitas, California.
