Missional Practices & Beloved Community with Dr. Kyle Oliver 

What does it mean to lead during a time of religious, sociocultural, and environmental upheaval? What can churches do differently to better reflect and nurture gospel values and God’s dream of a just, reconciled, Spirit-filled world? This course in missional leadership will ask these and related questions.

Attitudes of Care: Ecotheology in Practice with the Rev. Phina Borgeson 

Journey from lament to hope, exploring different dispositions—such as awe, curiosity, and offering—toward the more than human creation and our current ecological crisis. Each week a key reading will support an activity focused on participants’ places and contexts. Together readings and experience will provide rich material for forum conversations. Those engaged with creation care ministries in their communities, or planning them with their congregations, will find opportunities for deepening reflection and articulating the Christian reasons for concern and action.

About Church Divinity School of the Pacific 

CDSP forms leaders called to find new ways to create Christian communities and share God’s love. Through our partnership with Trinity Church Wall Street and an ongoing dialog with bishops and grassroots leaders, we have focused our degree programs on Christian mission, discipleship, and evangelism and on core leadership skills of contextual awareness, critical reflection, and public conversation; refocused our mission on our popular hybrid program for students balancing family obligations or professional responsibilities; and established partnerships that allow us to create distance learning curricula for individual dioceses.
