(includes meeting of Faculty Area Groups)
Join us for this Virtual Event!
Theological Education involves the preparation of religious leaders to engage public life, which includes ongoing issues of social justice. But the traditions of theological education themselves also need critical examination around issues of justice, racial equity, and cultural-inclusivity of the growing diversity of God’s Church. Join one of the accomplished and challenging leaders in the field to explore how Justice Formation is key to the theological education enterprise.
