Who are “we” as a tribe? We who share this mysterious DNA of the soul and spirit?
What is it in us that is the same; that pulls us toward the same horizon, pulls us together with the quiet astonishment of “What? You, too?”? Who are we as a tribe of Christ followers bent toward making; artists and writers and craftsman of every kind who have suffered, loved, pressed on for the sake of Beauty, kept reaching for the Light? Who are we who cherish every representation of Goodness, and guard it fiercely when it is placed in our keeping?
Who are we who swear allegiance to a High King we cannot yet see with our made eyes; who know His voice speaking without sound; who hold the ground for Him as we wait for His return?
Who are we who worship our God and Maker through our making and our living? 







Rooted and grounded in Christ, the Vine and Oak,
we cultivate our lives as a garden
to produce the fruit of the Spirit as much as we cultivate it to produce art.
We cultivate healthy marriages and healthy children.
We cultivate circles of nourished friends, and honourable ways to make a living.
We cultivate by choice. We cultivate by discipline.
We cultivate the conditions in which goodness, truth, and beauty thrive
within the lines drawn for us.
We cultivate spaces for others to find refuge, healing, and places to flourish of their own.
We cultivate planting, growth, harvest, and Sabbath in their seasons.
We tend growth and we defend it.
We labour wholeheartedly to reclaim what was given us but was lost.
We work to rebuild, restore, and renew whole lives reflecting the mending of all that has been broken.
We labour for the restoration of what is meant to be,
people made whole, right, mended, and free..
We are namers and makers, prayers and labourers, envisioners and incarnators.
We are Cultivators tending to the business
of both earth and Heaven,
walking with God as we are made to in the gardens of our lives
and the Kingdom that is coming.

The cultivator's manifesto

We are Cultivators,
oaks of righteousness,
planted by the Lord,
for His splendour 
and joy.

"For we are God’s fellow workers [His servants working together]; 
you are God’s cultivated field [His garden, His vineyard],
God’s building."

1 Corinthians 3:9

good. true. beautiful.
