About this event

Attend the full conference, or one (or both!) of the keynote sessions by choosing the appropriate ticket type.

What does building beloved community look like?

At Newbigin House, we have the great privilege of continually learning from many wise teachers about the spiritual work of building beloved community. While we certainly don’t have the whole picture, we have seen that the work involves many hands and hearts joining together to envision a better future. Reckoning with the hard lessons of the past is nonnegotiable. Reflecting with greater attentiveness to the present moment is also necessary. And all of it, far from a solitary endeavor, is a shared calling to labor together. This conference will feature critical perspectives from some of our favorite leading voices (including members of our team) for the task of building beloved community amidst ongoing conflict and division.

We’ll be asking big questions like:

How can the African spiritual principle of Ubuntu contribute to the building of beloved community? A question especially pertinent for our keynote speaker Michael Battle, author of Ubuntu: I in You and You in Me.

What would it look like to leave behind the militant masculinity and patriarchy so pervasive in American Christianity? A pressing question for our keynote speaker Kristin Du Mez, author of Jesus and John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation.

How can friendships across boundaries of faith and culture strengthen us for the work of building beloved community? A question explored by Bishop Marc Andrus in his new book Brothers in the Beloved Community: The Friendship of Thich Nhat Hanh and Martin Luther King Jr.

We hope you will join us for conversation and learning around these and other questions -- and the work before us...
