A program of
Ecclesia comes from a Greek word meaning "those who are called out." At Ecclesia, we create a spiritual space that emphasizes authenticity and the radical welcoming of those who scarcely believe they belong–disenfranchised, discriminated against, or locked in clutches of poverty to break bread and provide a sabbath rest for those needing respite.
Central to our community is the core belief that in every human heart, an unfilled gap exists. An incomplete search or imperfection that can’t be made perfect. This gap is filled or complimented in an embodied, interconnected community and in the belief in something more significant and beyond ourselves.
Ecclesia blends spirituality with technology, education, and arts to create all-inclusive secular and faith-based groups where historically minoritized communities learn from one another, harness their social capital, and find community.
We like to call it spirituali-TEA
Build intentional communities.
Many people are leaving religion as we understand it because they're afraid of being shunned, criticized, and rejected for who they are and what makes them human. They are disavowing faith tenets that openly support oppression, hate, and nationalism over liberty, love, and community.
MLIFE's Ecclesia program harnesses the spiritual and social capital of those at the margins, locally and globally, to be heard and answered.
Our Spirituali-TEA communities are bonded together by love and acceptance. We are multifaith, multicultural, and multiethnic, centering on the spirituality of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color while welcoming all faiths, colors, nationalities, sexual orientations, and identities to wholeness and justice.
No matter your age, there’s always a way to be plugged in Ecclesia!
