At Pastors in Exile we value:
LOVING – We live in Jesus’ radical love that overcomes all boundaries, oppression, & fear
BRIDGING – bridging the gap between generations and diverse theological viewpoints
TRANSCENDING – we believe that faith transcends church walls
HOPING – we choose to believe that there is hope for church in exile
INCLUDING – we are all God’s children in all of our diverse identities – this is messy and beautiful!
CREATING – We see the Spirit moving in new, creative & exciting ways in this exile
We welcome everyone to join in the movement of PiE. We work out of an Anabaptist-Christian framework. These days, we’re intrigued by how our friend Palmer Becker explains Anabaptism:
Jesus is the centre of our faith
Community is the centre of our lives
Reconciliation is the centre of our work
This is just one way of explaining it. Like all movements Anabaptism, is constantly evolving. We are excited to see where the Spirit of God moves next!
