Forming thoughtful, engaged and generous Christian leaders for the church in the 21st century


January 8 – 10: Theology for Non-Theologians

Instructor(s): Rev. Dr. Richard Topping

In the long conversation that is the Christian tradition similar topics keep coming up – creation, God, Christ, Spirit, Church and hope are among the most important. We will join this exchange over a couple of days to listen to what has been said on these themes and to join the discussion. Finally we will draw on what we learn to address some of the challenges of our time.
