Justice, Grace, Hope:
Making Sense in a Mixed-Up World
These loosely connected sessions centered around practical issues of how we can live, as Christians, in a world that continually challenges us.
We considered the factors that have led to a tendency toward quietude in the church. We also learned of theological traditions and resources that help anchor and expand our grasp of the implications of the Gospel.
We considered grace in terms of our interpersonal relations, our approach to public
policies, and our ultimate salvation.
Elements of the Christian tradition, partnered with research and expertise from the disciplines of neurology and psychology, offered tremendous possibilities for framing and attending to the experience of grief, mental illness, and despair. We came away with resources and reasons for hope.
