homebrewedchristianity.lpages.co/theologies-of-resistance

We live in a time where the message of Jesus and the agenda of the powerful are in conflict, where the hidden systems of domination are being revealed, where the need for a movement of justice and a people of resistance is ever more clear.

For 4 weeks beginning July 16, you will get:

  • a video/audio lecture introducing the figure/movement of the week by one of the Drs. 
  • a video/audio conversation between Dr. Robyn Henderson-Espinoza and Rev. Dr. Tripp Fuller examining the week’s featured text (delivered as a PDF) 
  • a collection of resources from around the net and in books to dig further and expand the discussion
  • ongoing conversation in a private Facebook group
  • Q/A sessions based on your questions 

The cost? Contribute whatever you can to help make this possible for everyone. The suggested donation is $20, but no one is turned down for lack of funds.

The Transgender Faith and Action Network (TFAAN) is excited to bring its brightest stars and emerging leaders into a safe and intimate space to have dialogue around the most pressing issues and challenges for the trans community. The TFAAN Retreat is an opportunity for trans folk to decompress, be heard, engage and collaborate with great and like-minded community.

TFAAN is a collective of trans people of faith who recognize the value of being connected to one another and providing mutual support. TFAAN began as TransFaith in Color, a collaborative effort among trans people of various faith traditions to create more welcoming and affirming houses of worship. TransFaith in Color hosted convenings in 2010, 2011, and 2012, connecting hundreds of trans people and allies under the shared goals of learning, networking, healing, and empowerment. TFAAN builds upon the work done by the trans people of color and faith who founded these efforts.

TFAAN is also co-convener of the Trans Seminarian Leaders Cohort, a yearlong leadership development program for transgender, genderqueer, and gender non-conforming seminarians in the United States. This is a partnership between The Freedom Center, The Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies at Pacific School of Religion, and The Task Force.

TFAAN exists not only to change policies and raise awareness about issues that affect the trans community, but also to provide spaces for trans folks to network and heal. The annual retreat is an opportunity for trans folk to decompress, be heard, engage and collaborate with like-minded community.

Join an intentional gathering to turn personal practice into collective change. In the name of love and justice, we are uniting our voices to help change the course of our society.

We are facing profound hardships in this country – from poverty to gun violence, unemployment to corruption. People are struggling to survive, much less to be well. We need to come together now more than ever.

CTZN SUMMIT is bringing together those of us who know we can and must do better —— for ourselves, for our communities and for our society. We are yogis, meditators and conscious citizens who are concerned about the wellbeing of our people and planet and are ready to act in the name of love and justice.

Throughout the weekend, we will be inspired by leaders like:
• Marianne Williamson
• Seane Corn
• Rev Angel Kyodo Williams
• Kerri Kelly

Who will guide us to bridge our personal practice with collective wellbeing. Through embodied movement, meditation, self-inquiry, storytelling and small group work, we will cultivate practices of self-care and resilience.

At the same time, we will learn from leading community organizers to cultivate skills like story-sharing, community building and deep canvassing in order to build our capacity to engage our communities in civil discourse. And together we will co-create new, authentic pathways for collaboration and innovation that transform our country from the inside out.

We will practice, we will unite, and we will leave with a clear purpose and a plan to put our values into action in our local communities.

Conflict Transformation: Being Fully Present, Authentic, and Creatively Engaged

Dubois, Wyoming

ringlake.org

Luther Smith presents at one of Ring Lake’s seminars: Our dreams for nurturing relationships, creative work, and experiencing beloved community are often shattered by situations of conflict. Although “conflict” is blamed for such broken outcomes, more fundamental matters are the real culprits. Avoiding conflict, rushing to resolution, political maneuvering, character assassination, and remaining anxious and silent are just some of the dysfunctional behaviors in disputes. With skills to befriend conflict, even at times to initiate it, we can create transformational opportunities that enact our dreams. Through presentations, discussions, video, and role-play, we will engage concepts and processes that enable us to live faithfully in conflict.

Better Angels: Using the Power of Community to Change the World

Transform-icon-FeaturedEvent.jpg

Montreat, NC

montreat.org/better-angels

When we look at the intersection of today’s headlines and God’s concern we see topics like racism, #metoo, immigration, and violence. In each of these discussions, the common thread is power. It’s the same when we look at the topics of spirited discussion in our churches, like the budget, mission, stewardship, and recruitment of leaders. And yet power is something we rarely talk about, analyze, or organize around, even though we’re dealing with it, using it, or finding ourselves without it, all the time.

This conference will examine the biblical, theological, and sociological understandings of power and the church’s relationship to it. When do we build power for the gospel, and when do we resist the powers that oppose it? How is power necessary for congregational leadership, and when does it divide? How do we wield power in the church in unifying ways without diminishing Jesus’ radical call to discipleship?

How can people of faith engage in constructive conversations about sexuality when we are more aware than ever of its complexity and diversity? When the word “sex” itself can elicit conflict and division, is it possible to move beyond schisms to dialogue and discernment? How do modern understandings of human sexuality inform a holistic sexual ethic? Join the Alliance of Baptists for a justice-focused event exploring ways we can work together to bring sex to light. 

The conference, taking place Oct. 18-20 at the Scarritt Bennett Center in Nashville, Tenn., is open to all who wish to foster healthy discussions about sexuality in their own lives and in their faith communities. Attendees will participate in worship, learn from experts, engage in honest conversation and take part in breakout sessions that explore: 

  • How our understanding of sexuality changed over time;
  • How cultures, institutions and faith traditions approach sexuality – both in the past and in our current moment;
  • Guiding principles for developing a contemporary sexual ethic; and
  • How people of faith reclaim sex as a gift from God and support healthy sexuality in our communities.

The overriding purpose of The Fellowship of Affirming Ministries is to support religious leaders and laity in moving toward a theology of radical inclusivity which, by its very nature, requires an equally radical social ministry reaching to the furthest margins of society to serve all in need without prejudice or discrimination. The more specific goals of the Fellowship are to create a safe environment where all can assemble in order to 1) develop a safe space for personal authenticity and open honest exchange; 2) adopt a more inclusive theology; and 3) create a network of collaborative support and practical guidance to prevent isolation and loss, both financially and socially which typically haunt leaders and their churches as they become more radically inclusive.

Our bishops, pastors and lay leaders convene to share best practices, pray for vision and, offer counsel for advancing our mission.

To be compassionate is to bleed, to feel deeply for the damage around you and to be moved to respond. This is a beautiful and invaluable instinct, but it is costly, too. There is a toll the trauma of the world takes on us when we seek to step into that dangerous space and to work for healing and justice. In days when so much need is at our doorsteps and on our news feeds, how do we attend to it all without becoming overwhelmed and consumed by it? How do we avoid becoming martyrs of our own hearts?

Join this workshop-style authentic conversation on how to be safely burdened with the pain of this world, and what to do when you've exhausted your resources.
