Traditioned Innovation: A Public Theology Series
We enter 2021 amid continuing economic and political uncertainties, navigating the layered crises of the COVID-19 pandemic, persistent, and pernicious racialized inequities in church, nation, and world. This complex reality requires all the resources available to us, including a critical evaluation of the past – “traditioned innovation” (L. Gregory Jones) that fruitfully draws from, critiques, and reimagines the past for the needs of the present and future. NPTS faculty and leading practitioners of Covenant congregations and denominational ministries will collaborate to lead creative discussions integrating scholarship, ministry practices, and formation.
The call has gone out for unity in this country. What exactly does unity mean in our polarized American culture? What steps need to be taken to promote equitable unity in the church and in the world? How we can move forward as the body of Christ to address this social fracturing?
Our panel of experts and practitioners includes Dr. Dana Robert, Rev. Dr. Kevin Blue, and Rev. Dr. Soong-Chan Rah.
