Soul Rhythms of Rest with Fuller Seminary Chaplains, Inés Velasquez-McBryde, Kevin Doi and Brenda Bertrand
Our individual selves and collective communities have undergone a time of prolonged, compounded, and collective grief. We are holding grief from multiple habitats. In the life and ministry of Jesus, we witness that he observed rhythms of rest to sustain grief and ministry demands on both body and soul. The Chaplains will be leading us in spiritual practices to invite God’s shalom and rest in the midst of sustained crisis and chaos.

A Faith of Crisis: Participating with the Spirit of Disruption
with Kutter Callaway
In times of overlapping crises and catastrophes, hope can sometimes feel like an unhelpful (and possibly offensive) refusal to stare into the dark heart of reality. But as people of faith, Christians are called to hope–to pursue a love that dares to, in the words of Mirslov Volf, “stretch itself into the future.” This seminar will consider what it means for Christians to embody hope in the midst of chaos, not by going through a “crisis of faith” but by embracing a “faith of crisis.”

The Innovative Church with Scott Cormode
The church as we know it is calibrated for a world that no longer exists. It needs to recalibrate in order to address the questions that animate today’s congregants. Scott Cormode explores the role of Christian practices in recalibrating the church for the twenty-first century, offering church leaders innovative ways to express the never-changing gospel to their ever-changing congregations. This material has been road-tested with over one hundred churches through the Fuller Youth Institute and includes five questions that guide Christian leaders who wish to innovate.

Blessed are the Peacemakers: Hope in Times of Bitter Division with Alexia Salvatierra
Many of us are anguished about the depth of division in our country. Our frustration and pain is worsened by not knowing resources or strategies that can lead towards shalom. Rev. Dr. Alexia Salvatierra, the co-author of “Faith-Rooted Organizing: Mobilizing the Church in Service to the World” will share from her forty years of community ministry as well as from the broader tapestry of peace-making missions around the globe.

Why Am I So Angry? Lessons from the Therapy Office for Talking Politics with Brad Strawn
Most people would agree that political discourse in the US has reached all time highs of name-calling, “othering,” disrespect and character assasination. The question remains, why can’t we disagree civilly with one another? Why do our conversations in the media and even around the family dinner table deteriorate so? This webinar will offer a psychological understanding of this process and offer a way forward (hard as it may be) toward hospitable dialogue.
