New Story Festival

word cloud logo for event Journey is partnering with the New Story Festival, a celebration of creativity, spirituality, and social action, coming to Austin on March 29-31, 2019. You can get a taste of what the full festival will be like at their one-day preview, New Story Experience, on Saturday November 3 at Huston-Tillotson University. It will feature special guests Brian McLaren, Micky ScottBey Jones, Mona Haydar, Gareth Higgins, and more! Tickets are only $49 but seats are limited so don’t delay. There will be both kids and youth programming at the March festival (and childcare for elementary age kids in November), so families are encouraged to come. And they offer lots of options to make it affordable for folks at all income levels. Find out more at newstoryfestival.com.

Journey Contribution Cards

JIFC contribution cardHave you ever felt left out at offering time because you give online, and you're not quite sure what to do when the baskets go by? Or maybe you write a check at the beginning of the month and wonder what to do those other Sundays of the month? Do you give your time rather than money? Well, your Bones Ministry feels your pain. We've come up with some simple Journey Giving Cards, available on the back tables, to help you during offering. Just pick one up on your way in and later drop it in the basket. It allows you to actively participate in offering and to demonstrate your commitment to Journey. And the Journey Giving cards are for everyone! Sometimes folks have nothing to offer but prayers and good wishes, so use the Journey Giving Cards for that purpose, too. It's all about being present, being intentional, and being part of giving to and sustaining our faith community. Every contribution — of whatever sort — counts!

Refractions

Share your stories, images, and voice

 

When light passes through a lens, it is bent or "refracted." It is changed. We all see the world through the lens of our own experience. Here, Journeyers share some of those experiences and lenses with you. Refractions is a new feature of the Journey website that will present stories, images and sounds that show how Journeyers see the world and the Divine. This project was very dear to our late pastor David Gentiles and is dedicated to his memory.

If you are interested in contributing to Refractions, please contact us here.
