Confluence is hosted by St. John’s Episcopal Church in Franklinton, Ohio in partnership with the Diocese of Southern Ohio. Confluence is an Episcopal Service Corps program for recent college graduates or young adults with comparable experience who commit to a year of spiritual formation, vocational discernment, social justice and intentional community. Starting in late August, corps members work 35 hours per week in direct-care or administrative positions at some of Columbus’ most innovative and caring social service agencies. The members live in intentional community, sharing the Hospitality House in Franklinton owned by St. John’s Episcopal Church. They will receive support and educational enrichment through Confluence staff, neighborhood partners, and the congregational community of this historic church in Franklinton.
Here is a beautiful video created by two talented filmmakers, Matthew and Elisa Leahy of Noonday Films and members of the Franklinton intentional community in Columbus. St. John’s Episcopal Church hosts street church every Sunday at 1 pm in a parking lot in Franklinton. It is perhaps one of the best examples of what a fresh expression of church really is. Wondering how we can create communities of faith in our neighborhood parking lots?
