Lumunos first came into my life in the mid-1980s (when it was called Faith at Work) through its then-President Marjory Zoet Bankson. The life-changing weekend women's events she designed made the Bible come to life by helping me connect my story with God's story. I subsequently not only attended women's events but also helped design them. I have served on the Board. Currently I write every few weeks for the Lumunos blog. The people I have met through Lumunos, who come from all over the country, have been among the most authentic teachers and seekers I could ever hope to know. The dynamics at Lumunos gatherings--whether at women's events, mixed events, or board meetings--are consistently open, affirming, forward-thinking, and grounded in Christ's compassion and love. Lumunos has a particular interest in--and gift for--opening peoples' hearts and helping them discern their call. It operates without pressing a particular dogma or relying on pat "religious" language. It respects the individuality of all who participate in its events, and it values the various paths its participants travel. It opens a space in peoples' lives and trusts Spirit to enter that space. I am profoundly and eternally grateful for the ministry of Lumunos--and for the men and women of Lumunos with whom I have shared parts of my journey over the last two-and-a-half decades.
