Stillpoint draws together people who feel called to live out and uphold attention to the prayer, silence and discernment that are part of the “life in its fullness” to which Jesus Christ calls us. We seek to live out this calling with passion and gratitude, acknowledging that it is God’s work and that we may live in the freedom and joy of allowing God to shape it through us.
Two images are important to how we shape the various expressions of our life and ministry.
The second is that of a pilgrim, travelling lightly and simply, and moving forward with faith and hope into the mystery of God’s future.
We seek to live out the hospitality that is at the heart of the Gospel. First, the hospitality with which God receives us. Secondly, the hospitality we extend to ourselves. And thirdly, the hospitality that welcomes others in a spirit of love, compassion, listening and service.
As we continue to discern and plan the various expressions of Stillpoint, we will allow the above statements to guide our overall planning and our day to day living.
