2015 Transform Network National Gathering on Urban Transformation


  • Wesley Seminary Downtown 900 Massachusetts Ave NW Washington, DC, 20001 United States

Love God. Love your neighbor. Take collective action.
To continue the new arc we embarked upon last year at the 2014 gathering, Transform Network is partnering with Wesley Theological Seminary to offer a weekend of diving deep into urban ministry. Faith Matters Network is a proud presenter and partner in this gathering.

How do we partner with our urban neighbors in equitable and mutually liberating ways?
How do education, advocacy, service and activism affect life in urban areas?
How do we even define urban areas now in the face gentrification and multiculturalism?
How can contemplative spirituality help heal the deep brokenness in our communities?
How can people of faith help transform systemic oppression and poverty into interdependency, equitable access, and resources for thriving communities?

The good news is: we don’t have to invent the answers. Solutions are already underway in many places, and Transform is humbled to bring practitioners of this work together to share encouragement and ideas for the way forward. Bring your toolbox, get ready to add to it, and let’s go deep this weekend at this intersection of action and contemplation.
