The new school year of the Stalcup School of Theology for the Laity at Brite Divinity School is off to an exciting start with:
On the Mystery: Discerning God in Process
The Fifth Schubert M. Ogden Seminar on Systematic Theology
Saturday, September 10 (9:00 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.)
Northway Christian Church, 7202 W. Northwest Hwy., Dallas, TX
Catherine Keller, Professor of Constructive Theology,
The Theological School, Drew University
When does mystery mean a mystification that silences our questions? When does it invite them? In this seminar, we will reflect together on several of the major questions of Christian theology: God and the scientific cosmos, truth in a pluralistic time, evil and divine omnipotence, the historical Jesus vis a vis the cosmic Christ, end things and new beginnings. We will consider them from both traditional and innovative points of view. In this we will engage in a theology in process, a process at once reaching back to our diverse theological beginnings and forward into our sharable hopes.
Catherine Keller has taught since 1986 in the Theological and Philosophical Studies Area of Drew’s Graduate Division of Religion. In her teaching, lecturing and writing, she develops the relational potential of a theology of becoming. Her books reconfigure ancient symbols of divinity for the sake of a planetary conviviality—a life together, across vast webs of difference. After studies in Heidelberg and in seminary, she did her doctoral work at Claremont Graduate University with John B. Cobb,Jr., and remains involved with the Center for Process Studies.
