Faith  Sifting:

A space to honor the questions you’re holding about faith, meaning, and the life you’re living

WHy FAITH  SIFTInG?

People are in pain around matters of faith. Their views have changed, and their churches, families, and faith communities have not supported their inquiries or their conclusions. Fractures have taken place. Painful rebuilding has been necessary.

The thing is, it’s important for our faith to grow up. Paul’s words to the Corinthian church may be familiar to you: “When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.” Our faith communities aren’t always equipped to foster the work it takes to sift through our faith. Owning the deep questions we are asking and embracing the answers that emerge are signs of maturing faith. Faith Sifting is an attempt to honor both.

What if we could do this work intentionally and in a safe community? Could the fractures be avoided? Could the pain be mitigated? I’d like to see if they could be! Faith Sifting is a five-week-long group reflection experience followed by an individual coaching session, designed to help you get more clarity about what you believe and how you want to live in light of your beliefs.

Description of Weekly Groups

We will meet with a small group (no larger than seven members) for five weeks via Zoom (an online video conferencing tool). Each meeting will start with a time for quiet to disengage from the events of the day. Then there will be some instruction or activity that helps bring new insight to the questions you’re holding. The majority of our time will be spent exploring our beliefs using the tools of theological reflection, spiritual direction, and coaching. No one will be telling you what to believe. Instead, we will help each other get more clarity both about our beliefs and how we want to live in light of them.

 

Consider creating your own group. Invite three to six of your friends to join you, and reconnect with them having the kinds of conversations you enjoyed when life got so full. Support each other as you consider how your faith has shifted or how your life has invited new considers of what you believe and how you live. There are significant discounts offered for Build Your Own groups (see Pricing section below).

individual Coaching

At any point in the process, you can schedule an hour-long 1-1 coaching experience. Most will use it at the end when the groups have quit meeting, but you're welcome to schedule it at any time.
