At it's core, the Christian faith is a call (or kaleo in Greek) to follow Jesus in all spheres of life. The Bible describes this commitment as discipleship, a blend of a lifelong apprenticeship and ongoing spiritual formation. Jesus himself told his leaders to always make this a major priority (see Matthew 28).
Much of what we do at The Table revolves around trying to connect the dots between spiritual life and practical life, and we've heavily invested in one . We call it Kaleo: a Call to Gospel Formation.
To be a part of Kaleo, the first step is to make sure you've done (or are doing) Origins, our intro to the Gospel, The Table, and what it means to be a Christian.
The next step is to pick between one of our three focuses. The Academy focuses on shaping the mind; the Abbey focuses on forming the heart; and the Apostolate focuses on sharing our hope. All three together reflect our call to love God with all our mind, with all our heart, and with all our strength (Deuteronomy 6:5).
You can see descriptions for each focus when you click the links below. They outline general thematic touchstones, but each Kaleo participant will work with their focus leader to put together a unique development plan for the year.
