Original sin has been part of Christian teaching for centuries.

This four-part series features guest speakers from Christian, Jewish, and Muslim traditions exploring the question of original sin.

The Universal Christ: Another Name for Everything Conference

Friday, March 29 & Saturday, March 30
To Register by March 27.

Christ is more than Jesus' last name. Jesus is a person whose example we can follow. Christ is a cosmic life principle in which all beings participate. The incarnation is an ongoing revelation of Christ, uniting matter and spirit, operating as one and everywhere. Together– Jesus and Christ– show us "the way, the truth, and the life" of death and resurrection.

Explore the central themes in Father Richard Rohr's new book (available March 2019) and discover the roots of the universal Christ in the rich history of the Christian tradition. Experience Easter in a new way as we consider a larger, cosmic view of Christ, drawing upon theology, practices, conversation, and liturgy. How might this vision impact our own lives and communities?

Gather at All Saints' on Friday, March 29 from 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm and Saturday, March 30 from 8:00 am – 5:30 pm to be inspired, educated, and challenged both by an exciting group of speakers via remote webcast from the Center for Action and Contemplation –and discussion with fellow participants.

Full Conference includes all materials and meals for the 1 1/2 day event.
Full conference with a copy of Richard Rohr's new book "Universal Christ" - $45
Full conference without the book - $25

April 5-7 Academy Weekend with Danielle Shroyer
Original Blessings: Rethinking Original Sin

To Register by March 31.

Of the world's three major religions, only Christianity holds to a doctrine of original sin. Ideas are powerful ‐ they shape who we are and who we become. The fact that many Christians believe that something in human nature is and always will be contrary to God is not just a problem but a tragedy.

Shroyer, author of the 2016 winner of the Illumination Award Gold Medal for Theology, Original Blessings: Putting Sin in its Rightful Place, will provide an overview of the historical development of the doctrine of original sin, pointing out important missteps and over-calculations, and providing alternative ways to approach often-used Scriptures. She will show us not only how we got this doctrine wrong, but how we can put sin back in its rightful place: in a broader context of redemption and the blessing of humanity's creation in the image of God.

Fri, Apr 5 - 5:30-8:30pm: Welcome, Dinner, Session 1
