Join Diana Butler Bass for a virtual retreat based on her book, Freeing Jesus: Rediscovering Jesus as Friend, Teacher, Savior, Lord, Way, and Presence. Drawing from our own experience, we’ll explore diverse images of Jesus from the comforting ones like Jesus-as-friend to more challenging ideas such as Jesus-as-Lord. Throughout the day, we’ll practice “memoir theology,” crafting stories from our memories of Jesus with biblical texts, history of Christianity and insights from contemporary theologies. This is an opportunity to both affirm your experience and delve into challenging ideas – a retreat for heart and head, all focused on the ever-compelling, and sometimes confounding, figure at the center of Christian faith: Jesus.

Diana Butler Bass, Ph.D., is an award-winning author and internationally known public speaker and thought leader on issues of spirituality, religion, culture and politics.
