The West Coast Centre for (r)Evolutionary Theology is planning for an ongoing forum for conversation that keeps pushing the edges of God-talk, and how theology makes a difference in our lives, and in the world.
Many people are wanting opportunities to have conversations that explore new ways of imagining and talking about God. All kinds of questions emerge:
- Theism or panentheism? What’s the difference?
- What is “Progressive Theology,” “Ecotheology,” “Process Theology,” “21st Century Liberation Theology,” “Evolutionary Theology?”
- How might our theological discussion be enriched by Postmodern thought, and the discoveries of science?
- How does the way we imagine God make a difference in our lives, in the way we understand and act in the world?
An ad hoc group of church ministers and lay people began to dream of organizing a CENTRE to promote such discussion. And Jay McDaniel will be giving a free public lecture at Canadian Memorial United Church, entitled ‘Ecotheology- A Living Option for the 21st Century’.
