Sabbath Economics and Watershed Discipleship

We have lost our way as creatures of God’s biosphere but the map woven into creation can lead us home. 1

From June 16th-20th, Fred Bahnson, director of the Food, Faith and Religious Leadership Initiative at Wake Forest University School of Divinity and author of Soil and Sacrament: A Spiritual Memoir of Food and Faith, and Ched Myers, activist, theologian and educator, are leading a course entitled:

A Theology and Practice for A New Day

Watershed discipleship is Myers’s idea, and focuses on five markers which lead to the renewal of our world:

  1. Theological re-grounding
  2. Re-placed economics
  3. Political imagination
  4. Social justice
  5. Ecclesial renewal.

As Fred states it, “It’s about rethinking how we live on this earth.” And that’s where the course will be focused. It will include lectures, site visits, permaculture training, communal meals, music, and discussion. And each day is bookended with worship. All of this on the campus Warren Wilson College, in Swannanoa, NC.

So, why not sign-up, dive in, and discover your place?
