Convergent Friends

The Convergent Model of Renewal among Friends demonstrates that change comes through a borrowing off the whole tradition and focusing on the best and most needed aspects for our time now. Convergence is about a clear commitment to conserving the tradition, being rooted in today’s context with all of its questions and challenges, and a commitment to the community being in dialogue between the tradition and its context. Convergent Friends builds on the work of to build a participatory community, one where everyone can actively engage as equal members and is rooted in .
Conv / ergent means:
Conservative to the tradition - Takes it seriously, allows it to evolve and live
Emergent within context - Context is the catalyst for ongoing adaptation
Dialogue between the two - There is a dynamic dialogue between the tradition and context in a way that honors both. There is also dialogue between insiders and outsiders as well that leads to gathering new ideas, critiquing, growing.
