Galileo Church

Quirky church for spiritual refugees. Who would Jesus love?

Our missional priorities:
1. We do justice for LGBTQ+ humans.
2. We do kindness for people with mental illness and in emotional distress, and celebrate neurodiversity.
3. We do beauty for our God-Who-Is-Beautiful.
4. We do real relationship, no bullshit, ever.

Eloi, Eloi, lama Sabachthani? My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? One of Jesus’ most famous prayers, the Prayer of Despair teaches us that we can pray that way too. Just like those of Jesus, our feelings are valid and god wants to hear them. We are not the first to feel forsaken. We are not alone.

Jesus prayed for his food! (Thank you, captain obvious!) And we really should, too. How can we reclaim the meaning behind that practice, and combat the meaninglessness that sometimes comes with mindless habits?
