BARTIMAEUS.  In the story of the poor man Bartimaeus (Mark 10:46-52), the gospel gives us an archetypal portrait of the healing journey from denial to discipleship. We believe that followers of Jesus should stand for compassion and equity, and against all forms of oppression and violence. But to do this we must face our personal and political blindness to the realities of suffering, as well as to God’s horizons of justice. Jesus gives us eyes to see and courage to follow in the Way of faith, service and solidarity. 

COOPERATIVE.  BCM was founded in 1998 as an ecumenical experiment in capacity-building for communities of faith, incubating collaborative work around liberation, nonviolence and mutual aid. We are a circle where persons called to radical discipleship can find support and mentoring.  We are a non-profit organizational vehicle for promoting practices of church renewal, Restorative Justice and Decolonization, Sabbath Economics, bioregional sustainability and social transformation.
