Sundays at 10:00am
The 2019 Pellett-Wearn Endowed Lecture Series offers us an opportunity to venture into the complex and invigorating world of inter-religious encounters. The twentieth century witnessed a "crisis in Christian mission," shaped in part by the renaissance of World Religions. During the six-week series, we will investigate how our understanding of "mission" has been critically challenged by the anvil of religious encounters. The series will investigate Christian encounters with the following religious traditions: Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Native American Spirituality.
