Just interjecting thinking someone here could possibly be interested in this...

I know the submission date has been moved to the end of this month...



This call for papers is seeking scholarly submissions for the 1st Annual Meeting of the Lyceum at Unity Institute to be held on the campus of the Unity School of Christianity, Unity Village, Missouri. The Department of Historical and Theological Studies at Unity Institute is the contact point for information about this conference.
Submissions are encouraged for papers in all content areas related to religious studies, especially topics relevant to the study of spirituality, theology, pastoral studies, prayer, theological ethics, Church history. religion and contemporary society, ministry, and metaphysical Christianity. The generic nature of the conference theme is intended to stimulate the widest possible participation in this first annual meeting.

Thanks wil!

This one!

1-1 “The Lost Sheep Parable Seen through the Lens of Spiral Dynamics”

Tao, I went over to the pub, but there was the verbose fellow taking up all the room slugging down glass after glass of Merlot and well...
Thank you, it was the front runner, but I was just visiting with two presenters, and one of them was 1-2 (the other was Wesley, 3-2 and 4-2) anywho Mark's is actually on spiritual economics and the issues of capitalism.

Still looking for more ideas, and Tao, where I am from the pubs are always open and have a plethora of philosphers, all of whom I can catch their talks and discussions anytime as they are on a continuous loop, repeating over and over...

lmao. i enjoyed that.... glasses of medoc to all who really understand red wine!!
 
So are these papers we can just read or do we need to subscribe to a journal? I'm curious about:

“Theobionome: An Alternative Approach to the Death of Jesus” “Reimagining Incarnation” Marcus Croom, Master’s Student, Shaw University Divinity School

2-2 “The Reception of C.S. Lewis in America” Stephanie Derrick, Master of Church History Student, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

6-1 “‘The entire universe is a sea of love’: Toward a Mystical Theology of Love in St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross” Cristobal Serran-Pagan Y Fuentes

2-3 “The Sartorially Challenged Wedding Guest: Matthew 22:10- 14 in the Light of Jewish Thought” Rabbi Zev-Hayyim Feyer, Doctoral Student, Claremont University School of Religion

“Why Every Christian Should ‘Quite Rightly Pass for an Atheist’” Aileen M. Fitzke, M.A. Jon Stanley, Doctoral Student, University for Christian Studies, Toronto, Canada





I admit I'm curious about the spiral one, too; but they probably just threw that word in to get people in their class.
 
I missed this one at first read :

"
“Why Every Christian Should ‘Quite Rightly Pass for an Atheist’” Aileen M. Fitzke, M.A. Jon Stanley, Doctoral Student, University for Christian Studies, Toronto, Canada"

In my blasé arrogance I have often in "debate" with Christians said that I am more "Christian" than them. And arrogance aside I AM more Christian than them. What good is Christianity when the atheists are more Christian than the hypocrites?

tao
 
headed off for the day...

I've got your notes and see what I will see...

Keep posting ideas for tomorrow... Presentations 6 and 7

I feel if you go around saying things such as "I am more christian than you..." (Which seems ver y childlike behaviour.) That is not the way of christ lol.... *reminds me of that comedy sketch 'we are considerably richer than yow.'* So arrogance aside I feel you're barking up the wrong tree.

Name calling, judging and self righteousness aside... Why do you consider yourself more christian than christians lol....

Hmm You do have a point. It was a bit of a stupid post to make but it has some truth too. Depends on where you approach it from. I say so because I do not live the hypocrisy of so many Christians and my morality is ideally Christian without perversion. Oh..and I can walk on water.

Thanks for post.

Ah Ok I get what your saying. One last thing though Could you just confirm what hypocrisy?

The hypocrisy of thinking being a christian means partaking of the weekly fashion parade and singing songs of homage to a church and its propaganda whilst ignoring the plight of your neighbour.

Exactly one of the topics in the atheist discussion....

brain is filling up and will unload more later..

Ah, so if I do not partake of the weekly fashion parade and do not sing songs of homage to a church and its propaganda then it is OK to ignore the plight of my neighbor in order to not be hypocritical? I just want to see if I'm on the same page... ;)
 
BTW, wil...

What was the question again?, I was too overwhelmed to respond!

There was a lot in there that looked interesting...I hope you enjoy whichever lectures you choose to sit in on. :D
