Join us for our Annual & Friends Winter Retreat!
The Amate Associate Board invites you to join us for our winter retreat. This year, we’re going virtual! Join us for a workshop led by the Coalition for Spiritual & Public Leadership which will focus on the theological and spiritual foundations of living out Amate’s values of faith, social justice, and putting love into action.
- When: Saturday, February 6th from 10am-1pm
- Register: sign-up here for this virtual event! You’ll receive a confirmation email, Zoom link, and virtual workshop materials in advance of the training.
- Fee: We’re asking for a small registration fee of $5 to compensate workshop facilitators for their time.
- Workshop Content: An abbreviated version of CSPL’s day-long faith-based community organizing and leadership training, this half-day retreat begins with an examination of the historical Jesus through a discussion about the relevance of the social, political, economic, and religious forces of Jesus’ day in the 1st century as a Palestinian Jew under Roman occupation. From there we’ll explore how this relates to the theological, spiritual, and political climate today, and what impact this has on our lives and our work towards justice. To conclude the day, participants reflect on their particular calling as individuals and as people in community with one another. You can learn more about CSPL and its mission here.
