Building on Fire

  • St Mark's Episcopal Church (NJ) 140 S Finley Avenue Basking Ridge, NJ, 07920 United States

Often Christianity is presented as a set of spiritual experiences, religious rituals and dogmatic affirmations that enable us to interpret our world, escape it or inscribe ourselves more fully into it. In contrast, we'll explore an explosive understanding of faith that is concerned with transforming it. A transformation that can mean liberation in our personal lives, as well as in our wider society.

This is a faith that expresses salvation as a form of critical engagement with the world; an engagement that is testified to in a life overflowing with love, passion and a joyous embrace of existence. A faith that demands we critique our most dearly held beliefs and make room for our deepest doubts.

I'd like to invite you to spend the day with me as we delve into these themes and unpack what life before death might actually look like.

What to Expect

We'll be gathering together at 10am for some coffee/tea and a chance to meet everyone. Over the course of the day I'll be offering some talks, engaging questions and wrestling with some of the issues you bring to the table.

Who Should Come

This day will be of interest to anyone who wrestles with their faith, who has more questions than answers, and who is willing to cultivate a richer, more expansive faith. It will also be of value to those of you moving out of a more restrictive religious past and attempting to cultivate a richer, more expansive faith.
