The Great Conversation Courses

At the center of our community is a great, ongoing conversation about what it looks like fore each one of us to take up our place in God's ongoing work of restoring wholeness to the world.

Together we consider:

Being in the Story

The story of God from creation to new creation and God’s intentions for the world.

Being in the Word

The Bible as God’s revelation; what God is communicating, how God communicates it, and how Scripture continues to speak today.

Being Human

What God's revelation in Jesus teaches us about being human persons.

Being Christian

What it means to be Christian, especially in religiously plural contexts.

Being Church

The nature of God’s restorative grace in human life and the church as the people of God.

Being Mission

Theology and mission in a diverse, global context.
