If you want to be a part of the intentional work of reconciliation across racial and socioeconomic lines, Dr. Matt Russell invites you to apply to participate in Project CURATE’s 2017 city-wide learning community.
Project CURATE (Center for Urban Reconciliation and Theological Education) is a primary hub for St. Paul’s vision to be a “cathedral for the city of Houston that embodies its diversity, inspires faith, and leads change for the common good of all peoples and communities.”
Divided into two semesters (Spring: January–May, and Fall: August–December), the learning community will begin the year with a retreat the weekend of January 20-21, 2017. By engaging in this year-long process, you’ll have the opportunity to build multiracial leadership capacities, deepen your biblical and theological understanding of reconciliation, and learn skills of community organizing within your unique context.
Each participant must commit to attending 10 Saturday training sessions. Tuition is $100 per semester; scholarships are available. Apply online: www.projectcurate.org/join-for-2017. Encourage other candidates to apply, too.
Collaborating with people from other faith communities throughout the city, this is sure to once again be an invaluable and transformative experience. Talk with any of these ProjectCURATE alumni from St. Paul’s about their experiences: Kelley Burd-Huss, Brad Harmes, Jennifer Harvey, John Howard, and Patty and Bob Mahlstedt.
