Expanding on our November special issue, “The Varieties of Religious Communities Today,” this webinar, grounded en lo Cotidiano, seeks to examine how the charisms of the Church dialogue with our everyday experiences and what it means to build sustainable Christian communities. Trends toward religious disaffiliation and the decline of vocations are an opportunity for discernment, an invitation to reexamine our convictions and to identify emerging practices that will help us flexibly adapt to these transformative times.
Drawing on the experiences and expertise of sociologist, theologian, and novice, we hope this intersection will be a dynamic entry point for expanding our understanding of what it means to live an authentic Christian life, and for discerning a sustainable model of Christian community.
