Joan Chittister and Richard Rohr Speaking from Wall Street to the Albuquerque North Valley

On the weekend of November 9-11, Sister Joan Chittster and Father Richard Rohr are featured participants in the Trinity Institute's 42nd Annual National Theological Conference entitled Radical Christian Life: Equipping Ourselves for Social Change. The Trinity Institute is a continuing education program founded in 1967 as an outreach of Trinity Wall Street, an Episcopal parish in New York City. 

On Friday evening and all-day Saturday, plenary addresses and interactive sessions with Sister Joan will interweave with small group creative work sessions where tools will be shared for contemplative discernment, personal and communal spiritual practices, and faithful engagement. 

“Our task is now to be radical Christian communities in the here and now, not fossils of a bygone reality, not leftovers from an earlier golden age. Now we need new wisdom and a new kind of struggle to determine what we must be and do in the midst of these changing times,” said Sister Chittister.

On Sunday, Father Rohr will preach at the conference Eucharist and celebrate our commitment with a ritual of commissioning. Here is the full schedule for the conference. 

So now you're thinking..."Sigh..This is really great, but I can't get to New York City..."   

Have no fear. If you live in Albuquerque, you will be able to view most of the the conference via a taped webcast on the following Saturday, November 17, at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, 601 Montaño Rd. NW (in Albuquerque's North Valley), 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  The Episcopal Diocese of the Rio Grande's Mission to the Homeless is a lead sponsor.
