Living Stones Church, Inc., currently operating as Living Stones Center in the Denver Metro area of Colorado, is not your traditional church setting. This decision was not easily made nor lightly considered but was birthed out of challenges and insights gained from the ministry that was created online named, Sarah’s Tent (mentioned in TIME magazine in 2007) which was the first online community for pastors’ wives and women in ministry.
After assessing the fact that in an organized church structure, it is impossible to truly mentor and have an intimate relationship with individuals and families, the decision was made to close the doors to the traditional church building setting and service times, to focus on addressing the trauma that caused the conflicts within families, church organizations and the communities they serve.
We began with Circles Journey Groups by Inviting women over forty we are addressing the heart of the typical Christian family – which is Mom and Grandmothers. As the matriarchal influence over families, Mothers, and Grandmothers are known for their volunteering, working, praying, and nurturing natures which are often taken for granted.
We focus on smaller, more intimate groups of discussion and activities. Circles Journey Groups for Women is a thriving and active community of women who are sharing their wisdom, experiences, dialogs, and traumas so that healing can begin–first in themselves, then in how they relate to one another and their families.
Additional projects and activities occur on a periodic basis to enable families to reconnect and experience a deeper way of communicating, addressing trauma and pain, and interacting within their communities.
