Rooted in the Word, We are impelled to be God’s language, Transforming the world we lean into life’s unfolding revelation.
We advocate passionately for the voiceless, risking uncharted paths. We listen in contemplative silence, attending to the call of
Simplicity and presence. We weave a network of connections among diverse peoples and in dissonant situations. (SLW Vision Statement)
