Whitsun fire, The gift of freedom

How do we catch the spark? How do we nurse the flame? How do we light the fire?

This conference is an excellent opportunity to meet different people from all over the world belonging to the Christian Community, to celebrate the Act of Consecration of Man, and work together on our central theme.

For our regular participants and the youth (15 – 25) we will offer different programs with lectures, workshops and other activities. A bazaar will acquaint you with all kinds of initiatives in The Christian Community around the world; here a flame is burning or maybe a whole fire? We call them ‘fire pits.’

For children age 10 – 14 there will be a special tented camp on our own campground near the village of Ruinen.

For more information, go to www.whitsunconference2017.org. On this website you will find all kinds of information concerning the conference. Soon you will be able to register as a participant or post your questions. The conference includes a children’s camp and youth festival.

Seeing Christ Through 20th Century Art

the-lamb-by-paul-kleeLooking back to the twentieth century, we see mankind go collectively through a profound crisis.  We entered a dark abyss.  Out of the darkness Christ revealed himself anew.  Traces of this event are reflected in the art and artists who lived through it.  In this course we will learn to see these traces.

Join the seminary in Chestnut Ridge, New York for this open course with seminary directors Revs. Bastiaan Baan and Patrick Kennedy and artist Regine Kurek: December 12 – 16, 2016.
