This 8-week series entitled "Living Well" will be the next step of communal preparation as we move toward a more official launch of the Way Collective at the beginning of Advent. This book is one of the best books we’ve read in the last 10 years, and almost no resource speaks so directly to the changes that are afoot in translating Christianity and religion for our time. Krista’s insight and depth of wisdom will inform a study through 5 main topics: Words, Flesh (Body), Love, Faith, and Hope. These conversations will be a more in-depth look at the Jesus Way we are all being invited into: a way of artful living committed to connection, contemplation, critical thinking, creativity, and compassionate action for the 21st century.
This will be much more than a book study. Our gatherings will continue to reflect our core practices and values while deepening our collective understanding of what it means to live well for common good in our community in our time. If you have loved being a part of Dinner & Dialogue series, or have a piqued curiosity about who we are, then this will be right up your alley. We hope that you’ll consider being a part of the core community at the Way Collective as we move forward and commit to not only these 8 weeks with us, but also what they are building into: a space for all people in the greater Santa Barbara area to find a spiritual community that welcomes all and inspires them to deepen peace and live well for the common good.
