Dan Wolpert – the Spiritual Life of the Every-Pastor

Join us for a conversation with Dan Wolpert, co-founder of the Minnesota Institution for Contemplation and Healing (MICAH), and writer of “Creating a Life with God” about the spiritual life of the Every-Pastor. Hear Dan describe his own journey from contemplative practice into Christianity, the common spiritual contours of a typical pastor’s life, the stories that almost every religious leader tells themselves, the functional atheism of the typical mainline church, and what it means to live as if God is actually present and active in the world.
