Thanks to the amazing generosity of an Archbishop in the Orthodox Church of America, Ancient Future Faith is finally moving from concept to reality.

The web domain—purchased nearly 13 years ago—sat dormant for over a decade as the Church moved from worship wars to more ideological skirmishes. Words like postmodern, emergent, post-evangelical, hyper [insert word here], fundamentalist, missional, and many other labels were slung, many used in the same breath as the word heresy. I’m not sure that word means what we think it means. *Princess Bride reference*

Many good Christ-followers got some very bad labels. Many weak Christians followed some very bad paths. And sadly, many non-followers saw the Church’s self-inflicted wounds from not-so-friendly-fire and decided that they wanted nothing of it.

The wars rage on in some sectors of the Church, but a new day has dawned, bringing with it a generation that looks beyond labels, finds the good, dusts it off, and leaving the chaff behind.

There are many who are a bit fed up with the modern mess and are looking for old ways of living out their faith, ancient paths.

This community is for them… for you… fellow-sojourners on the way of Christ. No matter your ‘label,’ you’ll find friends and deeper faith for the journey here.

  1. Makes me think of a great song by Andrew Peterson, You’ll Find Your Way Back

    Go back, go back to the ancient paths
    Lash your heart to the ancient mast
    And hold on, boy, whatever you do
    To the hope that’s taken hold of you
    And you’ll find your way
    You’ll find your way
    If love is what you’re looking for
    The old roads lead to an open door
    And you’ll find your way
    You’ll find your way
    Back home
