Who We Are
The Gathering is a radically diverse collection of people who have come together to find spiritual insights about themselves and the universe. In doing so, members of the Gathering recognize our primary goal is not to serve ourselves but to reach out into our community, nation and world to help build a more just, peaceful and compassionate culture. We have chosen as our outreach focus to serve homeless youth and our commitment is to help end that cycle of poverty and hopelessness.
In faith, we ask questions instead of asserting dogmatic answers. We look to many faith traditions for wisdom as we believe there are many paths to the Divine. We study the Bible and the teachings of Jesus along with the other great prophets of history. At the Gathering, all people of faith - or no faith - are welcomed and celebrated. Indeed, we comprise folks of all kinds - black, white, gay, straight, Christian, Buddhist, Atheist and many more - all coming together in a truly friendly and very supportive way.
