Our four seminar leaders—three Elders and one Deacon—are scholars and activists who will help us explore biblical studies, homiletics, worship, and incarnational social action for justice in the season of Pentecost. 

How can we move boldly, creatively into Becoming the Beloved Community together? 

How can we preach, celebrate and live Pentecost not as a day but as a season of Extraordinary Worship during Ordinary Time?
