Featuring Dr. Gerald Sittser and Rev. Dr. Greg Peters
Registration is now open for the 2020 Catechesis Colloquium. On February 7-8, 2020, we’ll gather in San Francisco to learn from two leading theologians about how the monastic tradition can help shape our approaches to catechesis.
If, as Greg Peters argues, baptism makes all believers monks—what he calls “the monkhood of all believers“—then how might we re-think the theological and spiritual formation of all Christians?
Likewise, in his book, Resilient Faith: How the Early Christian “Third Way” Changed the World, Gerald (“Jerry”) Sittser helps Christians today, living in a post-Christendom age, learn from the early church’s practices of formation. Neither accommodating to Roman religion nor isolating themselves from it, the early Christian “third way” helped Christians remain faithful to Jesus Christ while dramatically reshaping their culture. The development of the catechumenate, you might guess, played a big role—and it can again today.
We have so much to learn from the monastic tradition about faithful Christian living, but especially when it comes to catechesis.
We’ll have four presentations from our speakers, plus responses from three “catechists in the field”—Fr. Ryan and Elizabeth Jones of Eucharist Church, and Fr. Lee Nelson of Christ Church Waco—plus plenty of time for questions and conversation.
All the details about format and pricing can be found at the event page below. Or just go ahead and register.
