You're invited to join us for all four Unlocking Possibility Speaker Series events and four additional sessions, all online, for integration and application.

Meeting via Zoom during the weeks between the Speaker Series events, the Unlocking Possibility Co-Learning Community will gather as a small group, praxis-based learning experience for those intrigued by the possibilities of an intentionally imaginative frame for life and leadership. We are looking for faith leaders of all types: clergy and laity, professional and volunteer, are all welcome!
Truly, there has never been a more urgent time for us to imagine new possibilities for the future. Thankfully, imagination is not a gift given to a few, but a discipline that can be practiced by all of us. We’ll cultivate our ability to envision better futures for ourselves, for our congregations, for our communities, and for our world. We’ll learn together about the nature of imagination, center it in God’s ongoing work in the world, and apply our learning to our own contexts through ongoing practice and reflection as we build community with like-minded peers. 
Each Co-Learning Community Session will include:
  • Theological grounding and imagination-sparking praxis
  • Large group discussion of the content shared during the most recent Speaker Series event
  • Small group collegial conversation focused on application of imagination in our own contexts
  • Sharing of additional resources for continued learning: articles, podcasts, etc.

Note that the Unlocking Possibility Speaker Series events will be recorded and made available for Co-Learning Community members to access should they be unable to join the live conversations. 

Also, Co-Learning Community members will have the opportunity to access individualized coaching on projects / ideas sparked by their engagement with this program. Bring the places in your community's / your congregation's life that could benefit from some imagination and let's see what possibilities we can unlock together!
