An Overview of Sabbath Programs from the School of Applied Theology - Part of The Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley CA
The School of Applied Theology Sabbath Programs are affiliate programs of the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. The SAT Sabbatical Programs and the Sabbath Break Programs provide an opportunity for priests, men and women religious, and lay ministers to renew and integrate their theology, spirituality, and pastoral ministry within a holistic context.
The School of Applied Theology has pioneered unique, relaxing Sabbath Programs specifically designed for persons seeking spiritual renewal and personal enrichment. We invite leading presenters from the schools of the Graduate Theological Union and other institutions in the Bay Area and across the United States to come to SAT and to synthesize the best of contemporary thought in their fields of expertise. They share their insights in short courses which are presented to the entire SAT group. This common learning increases the capacity of SAT participants to explore and share on a deeper level connecting their new learning to their experience in pastoral ministry.
