The Holy Spirit is at work in Central New York, calling us to build loving, liberating and life-giving relationships with God and one another. Our world, dominated by argument and division, needs the Church to model and offer God’s beloved community to all people.

When we tell our true (and sometimes difficult) stories, and when we listen deeply to each other’s stories, we share God’s gift of relationship. We rediscover the unique ways that Holy Spirit’s work in our midst. We build the skills that help us more freely share the love of Jesus with our neighbors.

This Lent, in four listening sessions across the Diocese, we will come together to hear one another’s stories, with a focus on healing the prejudice and discrimination that have kept us apart. In small groups led by trained facilitators, our prayerful listening will be a new step in our continuing Spirit-led journey to become God’s beloved community in Central New York.
