The Northwest Association for Theological Discussion (NWATD) consists of clergy–active and retired pastors– and seminary professors, primarily from The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the Northwest and Oregon/Southwest Idaho Regions, who gather together once a year for a time of reflection and worship.
Each year at the end of our annual gathering a few members of the group commit to write a paper, to respond to a paper, or lead a book discussion the following year. Each year a few members commit themselves, on behalf of the larger group, to serve as the continuation committee to oversee the program, to welcome new members, and to create simple worship experiences. And while our discussion is fruitful and wide-ranging, some of our best work happens around meals where laughter abounds, comfort is received, and bread is broken and shared.
