Reading puts us in contact with ideas and experiences not our own. It lifts us up and out of ourselves, while at the same time shedding light and forming connections on the interior level.
Reading is an act of humility. It admits there are things we don’t know yet, and that others in the world have something to tell us, something earned and of value.
Discussing what you read enables a further layer of discovery, challenge, and solidarity with others engaging the same questions.
We find this process indispensable for growth as a person. We hope you will too.

For millennial Christians who experience same-sex desires or gender discordance, some have told close family and friends, some are publicly “out,” while still others keep things pretty close to the chest. Many - even those with solid, honest community - know few others who are in the same situation. To live an integrated life - and live it well - there are things that need
to be in the light.
When it comes to the deeper wrestlings with sexuality and spirituality, it can be helpful to have healthy conversations with others who “get it.”
Young adult men and women who experience same-sex desires or gender discordance and seek to grow in Christ-centered community.

| OUR FALL READ |
This fall, we'll be revisiting Can You Drink the Cup? by Henri Nouwen.
This spiritual classic has been fundamental in shaping the charism of Eden Invitation.
Interested in our bilingual English/Spanish book club? Please mention it in your message!
“Drinking the cup that Jesus drank is living a life in and with the spirit of Jesus, which is the spirit of unconditional love. The intimacy between Jesus and Abba, his Father, is an intimacy of complete trust... That intimacy gave Jesus the strength to drink his cup. That same intimacy Jesus wants to give us so that we can drink ours.”
