Overview


A CENTER FOR INTEGRAL CHRISTIAN PRACTICE

We help individuals and communities apply spiritual wisdom to everyday life by (1) Awakening Imagination; (2) Creating Practical Content; (3) Facilitating Experiential Learning ; and (4) Empowering Leaders who can teach others.

Over the past 18 years we have asked, "What does it mean to be human?" and "how can we learn to live in the reality of the kingdom that Jesus Christ lived and taught?" These questions have led to a variety of experimental initiatives that have included neighborhood and justice engagement, intentional community projects, art-making and group spiritual formation practices. We are entering a new phase of our work in which we share what we've learned over many years and come alongside younger leaders and communities.

BELONGING & BECOMING: Creating A Thriving Family Culture. 

Family is an important context of formation, not only for children, but for parents as well. It's where we develop our identity, where we learn what to value and how to relate to others and navigate the challenges and stresses of life. This book presents a soulful, creative and intentional approach to family life that includes reflection questions and practical exercises for parents and families. IVP 2016.  Read an excerpt

 

FREE: Spending Your Time and Money on What Matters Most.  This practical book on simplicity invites readers to embrace soul practices like gratitude, trust, contentment and generosity and develop practical skills with time, purpose, finances and possessions for greater meaning and global sustainability.  IVP 2013

 

 

Practicing The Way of Jesus: Life Together in the Kingdom of Love.  So many of us want to live in the way of Jesus-- pursuing a life that is deeply soulful, connected to our real needs and good news to our world. Yet too often our methods for growth are individualistic, information driven or disconnected from the details of every day life. How can we close the gap between how we want to live and how we actually live? This book explores how to rediscover a sense of immediacy and action in our spiritual lives.  IVP 2011

Soul Graffiti: Making A Life in the Way of Jesus. Phyllis Tickle said, this book is not so much a book as it is an encounter with a Christianity that is urban, American, un-institutional and now. Jossey-Bass 2007

 

 

 

Animate Faith, An imaginative exploration of Christianity's big questions.Sparkhouse/Augsburg Fortress brought together seven leading Christian voices to create an accessible, captivating exploration of big questions of the Christian faith, including Mark Scandrette, Brian McLaren and Nadia Bolz-Weber.
