Refreshing Winds 2011 audio

Refreshing Winds, Here in This Place, Worship in Context

Brian McLaren’s plenary sessions on Naked Spirituality

Worship always takes place, some place, some where, at some time, in some location… The theme was inspired by the title of a well-known hymn based on Genesis 28:16-17. It reminds us that God is found in surprising places. “This place” is many places, and any place on our planet, wherever people are open to being surprised by God’s presence. And wherever that place is, we are called to live our faith mindful of the culture in which we are located.

Our goal is to recognize the importance of context and culture in our worship, to explore and understand how our culture impacts us, what culture means in our theology, and how worship is embodied in location.

Keynote Speaker: Brian McLaren
An author, storyteller and theologian. Primarily known as a thinker and a writer. His public speaking covers a broad range of topics including postmodern thought and culture, Biblical studies, evangelism, leadership, global mission, spiritual formation, worship, pastoral survival and burnout, inter-religious dialogue, ecology, and social justice.

McLaren’s topic for Refreshing Winds was ‘Naked Spirituality,’ also the title of his next book. He suggested that personal spirituality typically develops in a cycle containing four stages – simplicity, complexity, perplexity, and harmony, which becomes the new simplicity as the cycle continues. For each stage, McLaren provided three spiritual practices that he thinks are particularly valuable in our experience of God. To hear Brian’s talks, listen to the audio files, below.

Lecture Topic: In the history of Christian spirituality, desert and mountain terrain has often been the source (and refuge) of counter-cultural movements. The Desert Christians in the fourth century went into the desert beyond the Nile, reacting after Constantine to the church’s support of a prosperity theology, gospel of success, and militarism. In sixteenth-century Switzerland, Anabaptists hid in barns and fled to caves in the Jura Mountains, questioning the magisterial Reformation in similar ways. These lectures will explore some ways in which the appeal of fierce landscapes in the Christian life is closely related to its prophetic witness to the dynamism of faith on the margins.

Dr. Romand Coles Biography: Romand Coles is the Frances B. McAllister Endowed Chair and Director of the Program for Community, Culture, and Environment at Northern Arizona University. After teaching political theory for twenty years at Duke University, driven by Adorno’s claim that ‘to want utopia is to want substance in cognition’, Coles ventured to NAU in a last-ditch effort to learn how to think in relation to many of the specific challenges, opportunities, and peoples in his new home on the Colorado Plateau. He is the author of many books and articles at the intersection of political theory, philosophy, theology, and political practice.  Among his works are, Self/Power/Other:  Political Theory and Dialogical Ethics;  Rethinking Generosity:  Critical Theory and the Politics of Caritas;  Beyond Gated Politics:  Reflections for the Possibility of Democracy; and (with Stanley Hauerwas) Christianity, Democracy, and the Radical Ordinary:  Conversations between a Radical Democrat and a Christian.
