Who are we as travelers?

People moving toward freedom and fulfillment in our relationship with God.

Where are we going and why?

The relationship between Jews and Christians is two thousand years old. We worship the one God. Our ancestors founded our faiths on the same scripture. Yet still we get mired in our differences. We can all cite times of having to defend against anger, distrust and hurt – or – times when we’ve be the offender.

Can we find our way to the Village Commons by getting to know the Other? Can we look to scripture to lead us to common ground?

…… God asks us to try.
