A determined and inspirited contingent of Asheville’s faith community made itself heard last Monday, May 20, when over 20 faith leaders held a press conference at the foot of the courthouse steps to speak out against a plethora of laws that are being proposed and passed by the North Carolina General Assembly this year.
Take one look at the “spirituality” section of our calendar, and it’s easy to see that the Asheville area aims for wellness of mind and heart in a variety of ways — meditation, mindfulness, earth medicine, prayer, peacefulness, the metaphysical and Zen listings abound. One of those gems is Urban Dharma, where Hun Lye welcomes those seeking to practice and learn more about Buddhism. (Pictured: Hun Lye; photo by Taylor Johnson)
Blue Ocean Faith will hold its 2013 Southeastern Conference Thursday-Saturday, March 7-9, at the Blue Ridge Vineyard Church in north Asheville. Curious about the ideas and folks behind the conference, I asked Tom Camacho, pastor of the Blue Ridge Vineyard, whether we're experiencing a contemporary reformation.

At a time when growing numbers of Americans have abandoned traditional religion, Asheville residents still fill the pews in Church Street's three historic sanctuaries every Sunday. Clergy from Central United Methodist, First Presbyterian and Trinity Episcopal tell Xpress how they're responding to sweeping spiritual change. (Cover design by Emily Busey)
