8.11 A Voice of Their Own: The Authority of the Local Parish

  • Christine Schenk csj, introduces William A. Clark, S.J., to speak about his recent book with the same title (Liturgical Press). In the book Clark argues that the local parish community gives the Church its real and concrete authority. He will reflect on a theology of parish that empowers the laity to renew the whole Church through the renewal of the local community. His insights are especially valuable as U.S. Catholics address widespread parish reconfigurations because of the priest shortage. Schenk and FutureChurch continue their CTA-endorsed project on the subject: Save Our Parish Community. He is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Holy Cross College, Worcester, MA where he teaches courses in Catholicism, Christian prayer, and the Church. In addition to his academic work on the role of local church communities, Fr. Bill has extensive experience in parish pastoral work, retreat direction, and music ministry.

9.03 Foundations for an All-Inclusive Justice

  • Margaret Galiardi, OP, offers a workshop on some themes from her Friday all-day seminar. Justice for our Planet and its people are two sides of the same coin. Three impulses have governed the unfolding of the universe through deep time to the present: interiority, differentiation, and communion. Through discussion we discover that they are fundamental to an all-inclusive justice. The Judeo-Christian move toward justice articulated by Jesus is the coding placed at the heart of the Universe by the Creator. To conclude we hear the church's recent call to eco-justice, and suggest actions on personal, parish, or diocesan levels.


Session : CTA822
9.05 A Place at the Table: Designing Catholic Lesbian/Gay Ministry Programs

  • Jeannine Gramick and Frank DeBernardo ask how Catholic communities can respond compassionately to the gifts, needs, and life experiences of l/g people and their families? What can pastoral leaders and volunteers do to build bridges to those who feel alienated because of sexual orientation? Planning exercises help us to start or further develop l/g ministry projects in our parishes, schools, and beyond. Lesbian/gay ministry is not a “one size fits all” endeavor, so emphasis will be placed on making ministerial choices based on each person’s unique ecclesial context. All those interested in learning to develop l/g ministry programs are welcome: no prior knowledge or experience is needed.

9.06 Listening to the Oak at Moreh: The Bible and Earth Spirituality

  • Ched Myers debunks the assumption among Christians and environmentalists that the Bible is hostile toward earth spirituality. Scripture is far greener that we thought. It calls the church to a deeper symbiosis with Creation. Eco-justice is part of discipleship. In session two Ched recounts the bible story of the Cedars of Lebanon—perhaps our oldest tale of ecocide and environmental advocacy. The prophets saw the link between empire and ecocide, and spoke passionately in defense of Creation, giving us profound clues for today's faith-rooted eco-justice. Myers is a theologian/activist for social change movements. His books include Binding the Strong Man: A Political Reading of Mark’s Story of Jesus (1988) and The Biblical Vision of Sabbath Economics (2001). He and his wife live in a small intentional community in southern California and work with Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministries.

  • Bishop John Shelby Spong led the Episcopal Diocese of Newark for 24 years before retiring in 2000. A preeminent voice for progressive Christianity, he makes theology and an inclusive faith accessible to people both in and out of the Church. In session 2, Embrace the World, Not the Church, he argues: let religion die. Christ’s purpose is to enhance life. God so loved the World, says the Fourth Gospel. Jesus is quoted by that same Gospel writer as saying his vocation is to give abundant life. Spong recently lectured to large crowds in Europe, Asia and Australia. His books have sold over one million copies. They include Why Christianity Must Change or Die, A New Christianity for a New World, and Jesus for the Non-Religious (2007).
