The Dawn of Redeeming Grace: Awakening to the Landscapes of Advent and Lent So often, our celebrations of Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter tend toward the cozy and sentimental. But the scripture is continually displacing us—calling us onto the mountaintops, into the wilderness, through the valleys, and to other places we might never go on our own. Come experience the Advent and Lenten texts as they beckon us to abandon familiar paths and explore new landscapes of our faith. Arrive…

Come create with your hands, gain proficiency in an art form, and enjoy the community of other artists during a fall week in the mountains. Years ago M. C. Richards, renowned potter, came to Black Mountain College to teach poetry but ended up with her hands in clay. In her book Centering she defines the word “craft”: "…Craft, as you may know, comes from the German word Kraft, meaning power or strength. We can’t fake craft. It lies in the…

Disgrace

The DISGRACE conference will be a faithful response to the embedded and structural racism in church and culture, but it can’t happen without you. Grounded in worship, truth-telling, confession, and collaboration, we move from disgrace toward solidarity. Together we tackle the hidden histories, unaddressed discomforts, divisions between people and communities, with a diverse community committed to journeying through these difficult but necessary and potentially life-giving conversations. When this conference ends, our true response to systemic racism begins. Can't make it to…

Montreat Conference Center

Out of all the Ten Commandments, the call to keep the Sabbath holy is the one least followed by Christians today. The Sabbath commandment is either thought to be irrelevant to Christian theology or unrealistic in light of our fast-paced and over-busy lives. Even those who do take the Sabbath seriously often fail to experience the fullness of its liberating and life-giving purposes. Yet, Sabbath keeping is a central and persistent theme in biblical theology, and as a spiritual practice…

Loaves and Fishes from the Saint John's Bible

How do we understand “illuminating” or “bringing light to” the texts and context of our faith? We invite you to consider this question as we delve into the first handwritten, illuminated Bible of its scale in over 500 years: the St. John’s Bible. The St. John’s Bible (SJB) took an international team of six artists and six calligraphers fifteen years to complete. It is the first comprehensive illuminated manuscript of the NRSV translation of the Bible in recent history. The…

Progressive Youth Ministry 400x250

It can be difficult for a youth worker who identifies as “progressive” or “liberal” to find resources and support. Most events, conferences, camps, and curricula cater to evangelicals. But as progressive theology gains more of a foothold in the church, we need a place to gather as well — a tribe to meet with, and new ideas to stoke our imaginations. In 2012, John Vest and Tony Jones, both veteran youth workers, began talking about a conference that would allow progressive…
