What:

icon webHosted by Malyon Traverse and Christ’s Pieces, PRAXIS is an interactive forum facilitated by Dave Benson to re-imagine how we follow Christ in a post-Christendom context. It’s about becoming a community characterised by wisdom and truthful action as we learn together new ways forward to love the world.

Picture key thinkers, practitioners, and interested parties from diverse vocations (education, health, church leadership, arts, conservation etc.) seeking wisdom to squarely face one question:

How do we faithfully bridge the divide between church and culture?

Typically a PRAXIS day will start casually: we’ll pray for wisdom and read the beatitudes, that we may keep Jesus’ way at the core. Then we’ll move through a practical theological cycle:

praxis cycle framed

  • Describe what’s going on, at the nexus of church and culture.
  • Interpret why this is going on, drawing from Scriptural, social/scientific, and experiential perspectives.
  • Seek from Scripture wisdom for what should be going on … what is the church; what is culture; and what principles should direct how they relate?
  • Respond with an action plan in our local context for more faithful practice.

Your questions and stories are centre-stage. This should be a dynamic day together, more of a workshop in wisdom and a dialogue among diverse people and less like a lecture. We’re seeking God’s leading for how to love in the midst of brokenness.

Where:
