The annual Emergent Village Gathering this year features the notable theologian Jürgen Moltmann in Chicago in September.
In addition to four sessions with Moltmann, the conference is adding several workshops on various topics connecting his work with a variety of issues. I'm pleased to host one that centers on possibilities for connections between theology and social science.
From the workshop announcement:
Can We Bridge Social Science and the Theology of Hope?
For most of the 20th century, the study of God and the study of humanity have been at odds. The uneasy and often antagonistic relationship between sociology and theology might yet become productive - if we realign the paradigms guiding the conversation. Jürgen Moltmann's theology offers several points of connection that can energize a new dialogue centered on a common concern over the future of humanity.
Other workshops are listed on the conference website.
Registration is limited to 300 participants, but as of today there is still room for more. Join us in Chicago!
