Learn how churches can breathe new life into their communities by radically welcoming others. Author and seminary instructor Stephanie Spellers teaches us how congregations can be more intentionally hospitable to those around them.
Ironically many growing areas are home to shrinking mainline churches.
Congregations often adopt systems which, often unintentionally, alienate those around them. In this course author and seminary instructor Stephanie Spellers, who wrote the book “Radical Welcome (see above)” outlines the key concepts and important understandings of what congregations can do to radically open their doors to their neighbors. She teaches us about the transforming power behind welcoming other voices and ideas from unexpected places. Her lectures include:
What Is Radical Welcome?
Radical Welcome and The Other
Radical Welcome as Spiritual Practice
Embracing Radical Welcome
This course is ideal for congregations looking to open their doors to the blessings of inclusion and the transformation that can come from radically welcoming others.
