If you have seen one of these events advertised in your community, you may have thought it wasn't intended for you. Or despite all the information, you may have only noticed the word “faith” and thought, “this is only for people who belong to a certain religion.” Neither are true.

It's been a while since I posted, and I apologize. The world has been kicking me in the butt this year. Of course, that really means I need to keep my spiritual side together. :)

For those new to the community, this is an interfaith, interspiritual community founded in 2013. This is not a single religion community, and posts that are designed to convert, coerce, or put down other religions will be removed. Thanks for understanding!

With your name "Patchwork Interfaith Community," I had to see what this is all about. I'm a quilter/textile artist and WestBow Press has just released my "interfaith" book called "Reap As You Sew: Spirit at Work in Quiltmaking," which shares 13 emotional stories about 9 women of different faiths including Protestant and Catholic Christians (pentecostal and not), a convert to Judaism, a minister of Spiritual Peacemaking, a Theosophist, a Zen Buddhist, and others who are spiritual but don't identify with a particular set of beliefs. I truly believe it is one spirit at work in all of us, and my heart is for unity, respect, and learning from and sharing with one another.  I believe that we humans are made in the image and likeness of the Great Creator, therefore, in our essence, we are creative as well. As a Christian Creativity Coach, my calling is to help others connect their creativity with their spirituality. I work with a lot of women in the second half of life, and encourage them with the idea that it's never too late to express your creative potential or to fulfill your sacred calling.  I'd love to hear from any other spiritual quilters out there.

I'm far from NH -- in California -- but I do support you in forming your community both in your local area and in this new forum. Blessings and Love all around!

Please join us on Sunday, May 11th, 2014 at the Cathedral of the Pines in Rindge NH. We'll be worshipping at 2pm at the Mother Chapel (located behind and below the Altar of the Nation), and we'll be talking about how to open doors and hearts and communication in interfaith settings.

I hope to see you all!

Hello, I am a born again pentecostal lady, Jesus is my Lord and Saviour, and I will never, ever, ever leave His side. 

Greetings and salutations! I'm Rev. Allyson, and I've recently founded the Patchwork Interfaith Community. While Patchwork is locally focused on southern New Hampshire in the Jaffrey/Rindge area, I am hoping that our presence on the internet will help us to grow and mature well.

Please come in in, start discussions, and share your bliss!

Hello, Allyson!  I am Rev. Tony Burton, and I am a cross-spiritual believer.  (How's that for a new term?)  My background was Pentecostal Christianity, but that was some time back.  I follow an Earth-centered spirituality now; I am an initiated Druid, a practicing shaman, and a reiki apprentice.  I am ordained both by the Open Door-Open Faith Unitarian Church, and the Progressive Christian Alliance (and yes, they know what my belief structure is.)
