Open Table Classes & Conference. Sponsored by the Northwest School of Theology, you can participate on zoom live or purchase access to courses and their conference after the events. From their website: “Nationally recognized writers, speakers, and teachers join and lead us to examine familiar paradigms and integrate different perspectives so that theology is no longer a “closed subject” that produces a dogmatic anemic spirituality but instead develops our spirits as it unfolds into a vibrant life within us.”
