Conference, Call for Papers: Re-Imagining Faith January 9-10, 2014 at Georgetown College (KY)
Please note a call for papers for and invitation to attend Re-Imagining Faith, sponsored by the Center for Christian Leadership and Discernment at Georgetown College (KY), January 9-10, 2014. Featured speakers include Walter Brueggemann, Molly T. Marshall, Stephanie Paulsell, and Miroslav Volf.
Description from the conference website:
In every age, Christians have sought to bear witness to the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ while translating it into radically different cultural, political, and social contexts. New forms of the body of Christ emerge from theologians, pastors, artists, and those confronting practical issues of living the faith. These varied expressions anticipate the church described in Scripture as “a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb.” Faithfully re-imagining our lives before the throne of Christ, the unmoving center of our community, is essential for all who hope in the Kingdom of God.
We welcome proposals (300 words) from pastors, scholars, students, or practitioners for papers (20 minutes read time) or panel discussions (40 minutes) on topics such as Christian faith in a global context, creative expressions of faith, current challenges and opportunities for Christian practice, ethics, theology, or the work of the invited speakers. Deadline is Sept. 1, 2013.
