Announcement: The Beloved Community in Exile
From the North American Seminary:
We are pleased to announce the details for our first in-person Open Course since before the pandemic! Beloved Community in Exile will take place Monday, May 30th – Friday, June 3rd at the seminary in Toronto, Canada. Coinciding with this event will be a Seminary Extension Course, a mirror event hosted by the Seminary Extension Course team in the Spring Valley, NY area. And finally, there is the possibility of participating in three of the offerings each day online. This is the first time we’ve attempted such a broad and inclusive hybrid event! We hope it will be a true expression of the times we live in; an opportunity to strengthen and build the beloved community, despite the challenges we face.
We encourage you to click on the registration links to explore the details of the offerings in each location and the online ‘space.’ It is important to note for our online participants that only the morning presentations coming from the seminary will be recorded each day and made available for 48 hours. We hope you understand our decision is based on the nature of this year’s theme and what we are trying to build together over the course of the week. Everyone who registers can expect to receive a packet of support materials the week before the course begins.

All donations towards the Beloved Community in Exile courses will help support the ordinations being celebrated in Toronto on May 14th and 15th. Any extra monies received will be directed to the Seminary Publishing Team, who are fundraising to print 200 copies each of our three latest books: Prayer; Faith, Love, and Hope; and Reverent Devotion. More to come on the exciting work of the publishing team!
Thank you for all you do to support The Seminary of The Christian Community in North America!
We could not do it without you.
