About the Sacred Art of Reading
The Sacred Art of Reading cohort will be dedicated to collaboration in “the forbidding discipline of spiritual reading,” confident that such an undertaking cultivates the loving attentiveness, prophetic discernment, and childlike openness to surprise that characterize what St. Paul calls the faith that works by love. Such work is always needed, of course, for the church to fulfill its mission. But it is perhaps especially needed now, when dominant cultural and political forces incentivize and accelerate conflict, playing up the most extreme voices, pressuring us to attend only to what troubles or offends us, acclimatizing us to all kinds of violence so that it becomes harder and harder to engage in good faith. Under such conditions, thinking deteriorates, and we find ourselves speaking up only to rebuke or refute those we feel are wrong.
This cohort is offered in affiliation with the Eugene Peterson Center for Christian Imagination.
