Faculty members of all Consortium Schools and the teaching staff of our Associates/Affiliates are invited to the
47th Annual Faculties’ Convocation on
The Role of Faith in Theological Education
Is theological education distinct from religious studies approaches, and if so, how? Some schools assign faith formation and spirituality to specialized courses or programs, others specialize in communal approaches through worship and conversations, others still integrate faith formation as part and parcel of intellectual, spiritual, and pastoral formation. Indeed, what is faith? A personal commitment to Jesus Christ?, a deep understanding of Scripture and doctrine?, an ecclesial commitment to liturgy, spiritual practice, and learning?
Hear from these experienced faculty members on distinct approaches to the challenge, and dialogue with them.
Dr. Daniel Carro, Philosophy and Pastoral Theology, John Leland Center for Theological Studies
