La Mesa is a Spanish word for table. It suggests a way of coming together in mutual acceptance, respect, and service. It reminds us of the life and message of Jesus - who used a table to tell the story of God's welcoming and reconciling love.
To embody and articulate what we perceive to be an emerging ethos amongst diverse groups of followers of Jesus, and to help that ethos be expressed as a global spiritual movement.
Beginning in 2013 with a gathering in Thailand 29 October to 1 November, Mesa will be completed in 2017 with a final gathering. Regional gatherings and local conversations will happen in between these dates.

Several parallel conversations, networks, and movements have been emerging among committed Christians over the last century - in Africa and Latin America, in Asia and Europe, in the Pacific Islands and the Americas. These movements were characterized by a commitment to "integral mission" - integrating personal spirituality with social justice and compassion, based on a holistic understanding of Jesus' core message. In recent years, these groups have begun connecting with one another more and more, and Mesa seeks to help their emerging ethos to deepen, spread, and move forward.
