Seekers School of Christian Living
Second Term Spring Semester
Sign up now for classes in the School of Christian Living, The new term begins on Tuesday March 20 and continues through April 24.
There Once Was … (New Testament Parables)
Led by David Lloyd
We’ll explore the meaning of Jesus’ parables in Luke and the other gospels for the 21st century using art, music, and movement to help unlock the text. We’ll look at familiar parables (including the sower and the seed, the good Samaritan, the prodigal son,) with new eyes and explore some less familiar ones (the persistent widow, the friend who came at midnight, the cost of the tower), and we’ll tackle the ones with a hard message (the dishonest steward, the vineyard workers, the big dinner party). This class counts as a New Testament class.
Semi-Secrets of Seekers: Everything You Wanted to Know But Didn’t Know Who to Ask
Led by Marjory Bankson
We will explore the worship experience as living theology; our culture of commitment, mission groups & retreat; distributed leadership and how it works; the role of Stewards and the Servant Leadership Team; money as a spiritual issue, and how Seekers might support your call now. Come with your questions. Expect some reading, personal sharing and weekly written responses.
Classes begin at 7:45.
Join us at 7:00 for a simple dinner before-class ($4 donation)
To register, use the sign-up sheet at Seekers or email Jacqie Wallen.

THE SERVANT LEADERSHIP SCHOOL AT THE FESTIVAL CENTER
The mission of the Servant Leadership School is to prepare called individuals and communities to come out of empire and into God’s realm, abiding in Christ to sustain them on the way.
Rooted in the inward/outward tradition of The Church of the Saviour, the Servant Leadership School offers a unique approach to theological education that emphasizes an integrated process of personal and social transformation. Spiritual practices are paired with serious study; intentional relationships across cultural divides come alongside immersion in movements for justice. Located in the diverse Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC, it empowers people from all walks of life for their next step in our shared exodus journey.
Developed in partnership with faith communities and organizations on a similar path, the School’s programming is organized around six themes: call in community, prayer and contemplation, Scripture and the Christian tradition, economic and earth justice, liberation from oppression, and peace and reconciliation. Each term of the School these themes are woven together to trace the movement named in our mission: out of empire within and without, into God’s realm in the here and now, abiding in Christ to sustain us on the way.
