Life Together is committed to renewing Church as a school of love. Our Church aims to awaken hearts, raise voices, build relationships, and act through the teachings and practices of love that will change lives and communities.
Life Together seeks to raise the next generation of prayerful and prophetic leaders for the church and world.
We call the way along which we walk “The Jesus Way,” after the one, in the Christian tradition, who taught it and embodied it most completely—as a human model, and, we believe, as God made human.
There are many paths to love that we honor and respect. You may have another name for the way of love: you may call it the Torah, or the Dharma, or the path of Justice. Life Together is a fellowship for those who are called to deeper exploration of the Jesus Way.
Life Together's training and ethos orient around three interrelated foundations of inspired leadership: contemplative, communal and prophetic practices. Contemplative practices include lectio divina, chant, centering prayer, Christian meditation, and deep listening. Communal practices include circle practice, study of the Enneagram, nonviolent communication, and the creation of community covenants. Prophetic practices include team-building, telling a public narrative, conducting 1:1 meetings, building a shared purpose, and other practices of community organizing. Taken together, these contemplative, communal and prophetic practices enable sustainable, impactful and visionary leadership.
Life Together fellows are supported by a broader community of practitioners, seeking what it means to be prayerful and prophetic leaders in their own lives and work. Our staff and faculty support the experience of fellows, from hiring to site placements to intentional living, and share practices that help the school of love become a reality in our midst.
