Camp Washington Day

Hi God...You Want Us to do what? Building the Haven Community

Written by Marta S. Rivera Monclova, M.Div., Ph.D.

What do you do when God calls you to something that doesn't exist yet? Build it! Well, easier said than done. None of Haven's members set out to found something new, but each of us—Marta (an English Ph.D., candidate for Holy Orders, and expert in grief), Gregory (an ex-computer programmer and jaded cradle Episcopalian), and Sean (a composer, artist, and former monk) - has been drawn into a life of dedicated service to God in community.

As we each spent time in established religious orders, we found that the particular pattern of life we sought didn't exist in the Church yet. By grace, we also found one another and discovered that what we could not do alone, we could do together. So we have embraced the joyous risk of sharing conversion of life together in love and trust. This conversion has led us in surprising directions and uncovered unexpected gifts. As we each grow into our individual call from God, the community grows stronger; and the strength of the community supports each member in our healing, growth, and ministry.

Our vision is to empower one another "to seek Christ with our whole selves and to serve our neighbors with all our gifts."

Free Resources for Mental Health Awareness Month

"May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Although we are not therapists, social workers, or licensed counselors, as pastors, chaplains, and lay leaders, we are often first responders—placed in the middle of people’s big life moments. So, how should we talk about mental health? How do we practice presence and create ministry that is inclusive of those who struggle and those who love those who do? Here are some resources that might help you dig deeper into these questions and offer you better language for those who are living with or affected by mental illness." -Kate Bowler, Ministry Happens
