The Grace Collective blog grew out of the Emergent Santa Fe facebook Community Page. A small group of us has formed around sharing our experiences of the Emergent movement's ideas on following the Way of Jesus ("Where two or more are gathered . . ."). We're people in the Santa Fe area who find value in having a dialogue around emergent movement writers and concepts. We're excited about exploring what it means and what it looks like to be a follower of Christ in the 21st Century. Our intention is to create a safe place to ask questions and converse about faith, spirituality, social justice, the environment, and fair trade among other things.

If you are not yet familiar with the Emergent phenomena, keep checking back to see our experience as we document it in this blog. 

In other words, "Come and See!" And if you like the ideas and experiences that we share here, contact us either through this blog or our facebook page. That way you can join us in person and share with us.
