The School for Christian Practice is an intentional framework that nurtures the community’s mission to seek reconciliation and wholeness with God and one another in Christ. By centering ourselves in our practice of prayer, we can grow in our awareness of our union with God and one another, and we can foster a spirit of transformation in our personal lives and in our community.
The core claim of the School for Christian Practice is this: only through nurturing an awareness of our essential oneness, with one another and within God, can we nurture a transformation of our hearts that can share in the Spirit’s desire for reconciliation.
As we look toward 2021, we are working to set up conversations, retreats, classes, and opportunities for study that will focus on four key points:
- Practices of Prayer
- Stages of Faith and Development
- Scriptural Proficiency
- Sacramental Ethics
On Sunday, December 6, we will have a mini-retreat that will introduce the vision for the School as well as ideas for 2021. Click the link below to register. Registrants will receive an email soon with a Zoom link.
Beginning in February, we will invite a parish and community-wide study on Diana Butler Bass’s book Christianity After Religion: The End of Church and the Birth of a New Spiritual Awakening (2013). Interested folks are invited to go ahead and purchase the book and begin studying and gathering notes.
