Over a lifetime

Generative Communities

Fourth Experience:
Vocation over a Lifetime

Our international and interdisciplinary colloquium on Generative Communities has borne fruit in this fourth experience on Vocation over a Lifetime.

We have developed this series of experiences for communities of men and women, religious and secular in order to enhance the experience of those who are “seeking life” at every stage of life.

These facilitated days will each consist of four encounters comprising scripture, presentation, shared response, poetry and group activity.

The  four encounters of each day will be developed from a colloquium to be held 6-7 January 2015, Atchison Kansas, especially the paper on “Participation in a Shared Project”.
