Theological School Community Forum Lecture – “Embracing the Other: Global Spirit and Justice for All”
April 4 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
We live in a time of great racial strife and global conflict. How do we work toward healing, reconciliation, and justice among all people, regardless of race or gender? Working from a feminist Asian perspective, Kim develops a constructive global pneumatology that works toward gender and racial-ethnic justice. She draws on concepts from Asian and indigenous cultures to reimagine the divine as “Spirit God” who is restoring shalom in the world. Through the power of Spirit God, Kim says, our brokenness is healed and we can truly love and embrace the Other. God’s Spirit empowers us to work towards racial, gender and climate justice. There is a need for us to work towards an Intersectional Theology which strives for justice for all.
This lecture will be provided by Dr. Grace Ji-sun Kim, Associate Professor of Theological Studies at Earlham School of Religion. Please join us at 12:00pm in Crag Chapel, but if you are unable, the lecture will also be live streamed.
