Fran Ferder & John Heagle

Download Format(s) :
MP3
$10.00


  • John Heagle, MA, JCL, and Fran Ferder, PhD, DMin, are the co-directors of Therapy & Renewal Associates (TARA), a counseling and consultation resource in the Pacific Northwest. They also serve as adjunct faculty in the School of Theology & Ministry at Seattle University. They are internationally recognized authors and leaders of workshops and conferences. Their most recent books include: Enter the Story: Biblical Metaphors for Our Lives (Fran), and Justice Rising: The Emerging Biblical Vision (John), Orbis Books, 2010.
  • Working for justice is the heart of the gospel. In our culture, justice is usually identified with the blindfolded woman holding the scales and a sword. But this is retributive justice, not biblical justice. This presentation explores the remarkable evolution from justice as vengeance and retribution to justice as solidarity with the vulnerable and the poor. Gospel justice wears no blindfold—it sees with the eyes of the heart. It is a surging river, a well-spring of God’s fierce love rising in human consciousness. How would our culture and our church change, if we chose to live out of this vision?

We in North America are inextricably part of these stories. Engage with our sisters as they speak to their struggles and the remaking of their reality. What do they long for? What keeps them going? How do they recognize “progress”? What is our part in this? What is the role of faith and church?

In 1992, as a response to LA’s civil unrest, Boyle launched the first Homeboy Bakery to create training, work experience, and opportunities for rival gang members to work side by side. Today, Homeboy Industries runs six social enterprises. Boyle’s first book, Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion, was released on March 9, 2010, and named one of the Best Books of 2010 by Publishers Weekly and is the PEN USA 2011 Best Creative Nonfiction Book. The 2010 Goodreads Choice Awards identified him as “Best Debut Author”.
  • For almost twenty five years, Fr. Gregory Boyle has run Los Angeles-based Homeboy Industries, the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation and re-entry program in the country, which now serves as an international model. Homeboy Industries is a therapeutic community where those seeking to leave the gang life behind can find hope and receive support to redefine their lives, returning former gang members to themselves. Fr. Boyle speaks about universal kinship and redemption, and how the healing power of unconditional love can remind us that no life is less valuable than another.

Speaker(s) :
Download Format(s) :
MP3
$10.00


  • Delfin is a member of CTA’s Anti-Racism Team and 20/30 Leadership Team. Delfin is a clinical social worker and queer theologian who is passionate about engaging the intersections of religion, sexuality, race/ethnicity, and justice—specifically around LGBTQ issues. As an activist scholar of faith, Delfin is interested in creating spaces where individuals and communities are safe and challenged to explore gender and orientation in their complexities and richness.
  • At a time when church and society are wrestling with understanding gender, Catholics have a unique opportunity to advocate for the just celebration of the transgender community. This interactive presentation will not only cover transgender 101 information, providing education on gender and its distinction from sexual orientation, but also allow time for discussion of the unique needs of the transgender community and provide pastoral strategies that recognize the spiritual contributions of trans communities and how to create a trans-inclusive justice framework.

The Future of Religion, the Future of Christianity: Notes for and from the Occupy Generation

$10.00


  • Matthew Fox (www.MatthewFox.org) is a spiritual theologian, an Episcopal priest and an activist. As a spiritual theologian he has written 30 books that have been translated into over 40 languages. Among them are Original Blessing, The Coming of the Cosmic Christ, A Spirituality Named Compassion, The Reinvention of Work, The Hidden Spirituality of Men, Christian Mystics and The Pope’s War. He has contributed much to the rediscovery of Hildegard of Bingen, Meister Eckhart and Thomas Aquinas as pre-modern mystics and prophets. Fox holds a doctorate in the history and theology of spirituality from the Institut Catholique de Paris. The founder of the University of Creation Spirituality in California, he conducts dozens of workshops each year and is a visiting scholar at the Academy for the Love of Learning.
  • The struggles going on in the Roman Catholic Church today have their parallels in other denominations and indeed in other religious traditions. Our species is in severe birth pains in an effort to create spiritual forms that are sustainable and contribute directly to a sustainable planet. Much is dying, much needs to be born. The young are experimenting in many ways with new forms and clearly rejecting the old ones. They are allies in this birthing process. We will reflect on Where and How the Holy Spirit might be calling elders and young alike to roll up our sleeves and get to work.

Justice Through the Lens of LGBT People
Frank DeBernardo

  • This workshop examines the spiritual and practical contributions LGBT people have made to understanding justice. Catholic advocates for LGBT people have relied on the church’s social justice tradition as the foundation for activism. Equally important is a new sense of justice based on relationality and the experience of overcoming marginalization LGBT people developed from their spiritual and personal journeys. What can other Catholics learn from this new tradition to help work in other justice areas?

Attendees will use cognitive, self-educating exploratory process to discern mechanisms of exploitation and identify patterns that must be altered in order for justice to occur. Attendees will generate the energy of discourse by actively seeking and naming the cognitive dissonance they experience in their belief systems, lifestyles, and or behavior. This type of pedagogy is designed to make attendees self-conscious and deliberate learners who continually confront the contestability of life’s contradictions.
