An Opportunity for Commissioned Ministers

Summer School at CTS

Christian Theological Seminary invites you to the Commissioned and Licensed Ministers’ Summer School, Monday, June 12 through Thursday, June 15. Join us for a special learning experience with Dr. Rick Lowery, on the theme of “Shalom: Creating the Beloved Community in Trump’s America.”

The course will explore the Hebrew concept of shalom. Often translated as “peace,” shalom has a much richer meaning. It refers to completeness, wholeness, the harmonious balance of diverse, interdependent, complementary forces. Shalom describes a well-functioning network of mutual support that promotes the common good. The course examines this key biblical concept as a way of understanding and addressing the deep fears, frustrations and divisions exposed in our post-election American society.

Summer School includes daily chapel, meals and conversation that is renewing and transformative. And it does all this in fellowship with a welcoming group of licensed and commissioned ministers!
Books include:

Carol Anderson, White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide (Bloomsbury Publishing, 2016) ISBN: 978-1632864123

Lisa Sharon Harper, The Very Good Gospel: How Everything Wrong Can Be Made Right (WaterBrooke, 2016) ISBN: 978-1601428578
