Christ in the City – Imago Dei & The Law of Double Love

Christ in the City is an annual summer series meant to equip the Pillar community for faithful witness in Jesus’ name in every sector of life. This year’s theme is “Imago Dei and the Law of Double Love.” Together we will explore God’s love for us as image bearers, and what it means to love others who also carry the image of God. 

Each event, taking place on Wednesday evenings, will be paired with a dinner at 5:30pm on the lawn followed by a presentation, beginning at 6:30pm inside in the Gathering Space. Check out our lineup of topics and speakers below:

  • June 12: St. Augustine and the Law of Double Love – Dr. Han Luen Kantzer-Komline
  • June 19: Imago Dei: Loving Across Difference – Director of Faith Formation Luis J. Torres-Ávila

Childcare will be provided for children at nursery and preschool ages. Children in grades K-5, are invited to participate in the Pillar Kids Creation Class where they will engage in exploring the days of creation, creating art from recycled materials and participating in a Creation Care Challenge each evening.
