Spiritual Theology: The Way of Jesus

During the fall, we’ll work on developing spiritual and theological wisdom for life with God, focusing on all of life as time- and place-bound in order to shape the ways we approach telling our stories, reading Scripture, and building a life of prayer and contemplative practices in the way of Jesus. 

  • 9/18: Starting Points for the Journey 
  • 10/23: The Inward Journey 
  • 11/13: The Long Journey
  • 12/11: The Outward Journey 

Childcare available. We’ll begin 20 minutes after Sunday worship (usually ~12:00 pm) and go for an hour. All sessions are in-person in the Gold Room with lunch provided (register below to help us plan). You are also welcome to join the CCSF group online (at a special reduced rate) for additional resources at the Faith and Justice Network! 

What does it mean to follow Jesus in our challenging times? Who are we, and how did we get here? We’ll examine the places and times that have shaped our lives to see God at work in all of it. In doing this work, we’ll discover that a deeper understanding of our present moment helps us walk in the way of Jesus. 

In addition to the lunch conversation on Sep 18, join the Faith and Justice Network to participate in a webinar led by Kirsten Powers, access reading materials, engage in conversation with others, and much more. 

To avoid a navel-gazing spirituality will require not turning away from ourselves but looking more deeply into ourselves. We’ll learn about specific resources and practices that help us along the spiritual life: contemplative prayer, lectio divina, the Enneagram, and more. 

In addition to the lunch conversation on Oct 23, join the Faith and Justice Network to participate in a webinar led by Cole Arthur Riley, access reading materials, engage in conversation with others, and much more. 

Following Jesus leads us through wild varieties of life’s terrain. Just as the road behind us has been uneven, there are more surprises ahead. We’ll locate ourselves on a long life trajectory as a spiritual practice. Taking stock of our past, we will look to the future with sobriety and hope. 

In addition to the lunch conversation on Nov 13, join the Faith and Justice Network to participate in a webinar led by Mark Noll, access reading materials, engage in conversation with others, and much more. 

Just as there is breathing in and breathing out, the inward journey leads to the outward journey in the spiritual life. We’ll learn about how life with God moves us out toward the world by seeing once more how the good news of Christianity is good news for all people. 

In addition to the lunch conversation on Dec 11, join the Faith and Justice Network to participate in a webinar led by Lisa Sharon Harper, access reading materials, engage in conversation with others, and much more.
