Forming the Beloved Community

Guiding Ideal, Living Images and Actual Practice

This on-line seminary extension course will meet from 11:30am–12:30pm each day, Monday to Friday. You will receive an email with a recording one to two days after each meeting. The recordings will be available for viewing until the end of July.

How powerful does this theme of the beloved community newly appear in the time of social distancing? Due to restrictions imposed on national borders and honoring the request of health officials to stay home we will no longer be meeting in Spring Valley, New York for this Seminary Extension course. However, it has never felt more important to focus in on this theme, this deep goal of humanity.

We are now in the process of creating a week-long program that you can participate in from home. This will likely involve personal practices of devotional gospel reading, meditation, prayer, artistic practice prompts, online presentations through which we will explore the theme of the beloved community. This ideal, which longs to find expression among human beings and which touches every human heart, will be the center of our focus for the week. Together we will seek for the ideal of Philadelphia, work with living images in the Gospels and beyond, and explore helpful practices. Our starting point is that which was initiated by Christ among the disciples in the Upper Room, which then rays out into wider circles of life, leading us into the future.

Suggested donation: $80 to $120 US per person for all five meetings.
