John Antonacci is very excited to be part of The Land community. His vision for a spiritual community, values relationships over ritual and service over sacraments. John tries to focus his spiritual journey on God’s love for all of creation and sees western Christianity’s development of a transactional relationship with God as a tragic misinterpretation.
John also thinks it might be useful to replace the word “salvation” in the “Christian” context, with the word “enlightenment”. He thinks enlightenment is what Jesus was encouraging, as the ongoing process of ever-widening the Christian experience to include more of creation. Enlightenment also emphasizes the ongoing nature of this process.
John looks forward to sharing a variety of spiritual ideas with friends who call The Land their spiritual home striving to share God’s love with each other and the world.
