Do you like to read theology? And you’ve got a blog? Then check this out from Tripp Fuller:
I am helping to organize a series of conferences as part of a grant at school called Transforming Theology. We will have a conference with three different groups, theologians, national denomination leaders, and seminary and divinity school deans from across the country. Because we share the conviction that Theology Matters,
this diverse group of mainline Christians and emerging church folk,
progressive Evangelicals and old-fashioned liberals, seekers and
settled folks will gather to imagine a theological vision with
intellectual integrity for progressive Christianity that is
communicable and challenging for the church.A huge number of America’s best theologians are
coming to the conference and as we move towards their arrival and the dialogue with the denominations we want to get the online community
involved in the discussion. The first way is to get books by these
theologians in bloggers hands so they can begin to engage the ideas.
Engaging them is what we want, not just an affirmative pat on the back,
a summary, or a all out rejection, but engagement in whatever your
attention is drawn to. Your post(s) on the book will be featured on
the Transforming Theology website and your questions and push backs
will form the background to an online component of the conference.
Let Tripp know if you’re interested!
