National Gathering 2019Connect, Relate, Respond
What is a “theology of place”? What is the theology of the ground you are standing upon? How does the social, political and cultural history of place shape the ministry you do? How does a progressive theology fit into the values of your place and how does it push against them? What theological questions are you wrestling with as a result?
Here in Charlotte, NC we’ll gather to explore these questions as we build relationships with each other. Give yourself the space to learn from and dialogue with your fellow faith leaders around the country as you consider what God is calling you to respond to in your community.
If you are new to W/ or want to get to know people better, join us for a pre-event on November 5th when our board will host a meet-n-greet dinner. It’s the perfect opportunity to get to know people on a deeper level before the gathering begins.
As part of our experiences together, we will learn about cultural movements and theological issues facing the progressive ministries of Charlotte. We’ll explore cultural institutions and get to know the local arts and food scene as we learn about the social movements that have shaped the ministries of the city. And we’ll respond to how God is working in us with worship, liturgy and artistic expression that we hope will help you find rest and renewal.
We want you to leave here feeling connected, engaged, and ready to respond to how God is moving you as a faith leader in your own context. Come be W/ us in Charlotte this fall.
We’ll soon be announcing our speakers, artists, and schedule. Sign up for our mailing list to get all the latest updates.
