The handwriting is on the wall. As Americans distance themselves from the label of Christian, preferring “spiritual” or no affiliation, attendance continues to slip across mainline denominations. Schools for ministerial formation are struggling with lower enrollments and less denominational financial support.

An Urban Retreat on Environmental Justice
Join us for 2 days of study, dialogue, ritual celebrations, food, music, art and community-building celebrating the Spirit of Life. Our Annual Symposium connects all Starr King School's students, faculty, staff, trustees, graduates and communities as we cultivate multi-religious, counter-oppressive, just and sustainable communities.
War does not end when peace is declared and the troops come home. It continues to affect the bodies, psyches, souls, lands and communities of everyone involved. War's tragic legacy passes on from generation to generation, more dangerously so when it is ignored and left unattended.
