This summer, our Lead Pastor, Rev. April Blaine, began a 2-year continuing education program called the Living School. Sponsored through the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Living School gathers 150 students from around the globe for an intensive period of study in the Christian contemplative tradition. Pastor April will spend 2 weeks a year in New Mexico, studying and learning with her fellow students and professors, Fr. Richard Rohr, Cynthia Bourgeault, and James Finley. The remainder of the program takes place through online readings, videos, and personal prayer practice.
