Welcome to The Liturgists Gathering

The Liturgists Podcast is a chart-topping, genre-bending exploration of faith, science, and art for the spiritually homeless and frustrated. It attracts a diverse listenership of believers and skeptics including denomination Christians, atheists, and religiously unaffiliated. The show hosts a global, safe discussion about what it means to be a follower of Christ in the 21st century.

Following successful gatherings in Atlanta, London, Denver, and Chicago we're hosting The Liturgists Gathering in a handful of cities in 2017. Like our podcast, this conference is a safe place to have honest discussions about doubts, hopes, fears, and faith. A place where no question is off limits, but you can find a burgeoning community of people who will welcome you with all your strangeness.  A place where the unlikely gather around a table and find a place to belong.

What happens there?

No two instances of The Liturgists Gathering are the same. Your hosts will come with a plan, but we intentionally leave the space and flexibility for each city to shape the event into a one-time-only experience.

It's a highly interactive event, with ample time for Q&A and audience interaction–many attendees find the most value from meeting the other people at the event. At The Liturgists Gathering lasting friendships form, and people find out they aren't as alone in their journey of faith as they thought.

Still, a few consistent themes remain:

01.

The Liturgists Podcast - Live

We'll open our time together with a live recording of The Liturgists Podcast, including questions from the audience.

02.

Engage in spiritual practice.

We'll practice meditation together, sing beautiful songs, and gather around the table for the eucharist.

03.

Be a part of mind-blowing conversations.

We'll discuss the most timely, relevant (and deeply existential) topics you can imagine–including unflinching examinations of justice and spirituality.

04.

Find a community of people like you.

The only common thread among this gathering: people who've been judged so much they don't have the energy to judge anyone else.

 
 

It's not just you.
