What Is Seminary of the Street?
Seminary of the Street
is a school for the training of love warriors working toward the transformation of their communities by embodying God’s
love in the world.
Students cultivate the resilience, the unsentimental awareness of oppressive
systems, the skills, and the deep and sustaining relationships to respond to injustice with steadfast love and creativity.
Exposed to theological concepts that challenge conventional ways of living, they are encouraged to cultivate an alternative
way of being rooted in nonmarket practices like love, generosity, tenderness, and wonder, a way of being so compelling that
it challenges the legitimacy of dominant social systems.

self-aggrandizement. We'll be posting complete meeting materials once they've been piloted in this first group.
