God Talk, Justice, and the Church: What do they have to do with each other?

"What does Athens have to Do With Jerusalem?" This question was asked some 1800 years ago as theologians and ministers wrestled with the relationship between the academy and the church. The question is particularly relevant today as the church seeks to prepare students for transformative, justice-grounded ministries in an inequitable, unjust world.

The Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas and the Rev. Dr. Charles Halton, the two most recent winners of Louisville University's Grawemeyer Award in Religion and priests of the church, will discuss theology's power for forming our emerging leaders, and our whole church, today.

Join EDS and the Episcopal Diocese of Kentucky for this conversation at General Convention on June 24, 2024 at 7pm.
