Summer @ Carey: WEEK 1
Expressing the Beatitudes through Justice and Compassion
Presenters: Dr. Jonathan Wilson & Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove (father and son-in-law) with morning worship.
Join us for Summer School and come away refreshed, challenged and inspired with new insights, new skills, and new friends!
About the Presenters:
Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove is a celebrated spiritual writer and sought-after speaker. A native of North Carolina, he is a graduate of Eastern University and Duke Divinity School.
In 2003, Jonathan and his wife Leah founded the Rutba House, a house of hospitality where the formerly homeless are welcomed into a community that eats, prays, and shares life together. Jonathan directs the School for Conversion, a nonprofit that has grown out of the life of Rutba House to pursue beloved community with kids in their neighborhood, through classes in North Carolina prisons, and in community-based education around the country. Jonathan is also an Associate Minister at the historically black St. John’s Missionary Baptist Church.
Dr. Jonathan Wilson: teaches theology at Carey. His passion is for growth in love of learning, and desire for God. His understanding of theology calls him to dabble in all aspects of seminary education: biblical studies, church history, the work of ministry and mission, ethics, doctrine, pastoral and congregational formation. He enjoys dialogue with his colleagues and delights in the enthusiasm, openness, breadth and depth of Carey students. All of this is nourished by a discipline of prayer, time alone in quiet, on walks, and listening to jazz; he also enjoys home-cooked meals and long conversations with good friends.
About the week:
Voices around the world cry out for justice. Followers of Jesus know both God’s promise of justice and His call to justice. A growing number of Christ’s disciples are discerning the work of the Spirit in the world and the church, and seeking to ground the promise and call of justice in the good news of Jesus Christ. This calling is not easy. Too often the church has been divided between seeking justice and saving souls. We have been captivated by promises of justice offered by the rebellious and fallen powers of this age.
Join Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove to explore the vision of justice that is the reconciliation of all things and the redemption of creation in Jesus Christ. Listen and converse with him as he tells us what new monastics and others are learning about God’s justice. Share with one another what the Spirit is doing among the people of God and in the world.
The week will include daily worship using the worship resource “Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals” , teaching from Jonathan and Carey Professor Jonathan R. Wilson (Jonathan W-H’s father-in-law), visiting and learning from communities in Vancouver, nourishment for the whole person, and listening to the wisdom of the Spirit as we gather together.
