In Creation Spirituality, we divide the year into seasons called "Vias," and every Via, we share Seeds of Celebration, a brief summary of the themes for each of Jubilee!'s upcoming Sunday Celebrations during that time.  The four Vias are:

  • Via Transformativa (Spring, the path of transformation) – The time of natural resurrection, new life springing forth from the Earth and from within us as well.
  • Via Positiva (Summer,  the path of awe) -- During these months, we discover beauty and awe in each other, in ourselves, and in the fascinating world around us.
  • Via Negativa (Fall, the path of release) -- This, too, is a period of celebration as we contemplate the mysteries that surround us, from the black holes of the universe to the nature of our own souls.
  • Via Creativa (Winter, the path of creativity) -- From the apparent dormancy of the winter months, we are called to explore the imagination and creativity that underlie all of creation at every moment.


It’s spring and all the things that lay dormant in the winter are coming back to life. Buds and flowers are bursting forth, birds are busy nesting, the bears have come out of their caves, and resurrection is happening. This is the Via Transformativa...the time of natural resurrection, new life springing forth from the Earth, and from within us as well. A renewing force for creation! Alone, that might sound a bit daunting. So that’s why we gather in community to support, uphold, uplift and energize each other in the beautiful calling into renewal – not just for ourselves, but for our world.  The Via Transformativa Seeds of Celebration -- the themes for each Sunday this quarter -- are below. If you see a theme that inspires you to share a gift of poetry or dance or song for that Sunday, please contact Susie Davis to get on the schedule:
