Join us for First Forum: ”Embracing the Other: Love’s Transformative Spirit” in the Curtis and Founders Rooms on Sunday, September 29 at 12:15 p.m. with Rev. Dr. Grace Ji-Sun Kim, Earlham School of Religion, Earlham, IN. Dr. Kim is an innovative, faithful, Asian feminist perspective on God’s Spirit in the world today.
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? In this First Pres Forum, Embracing the Other, Grace Ji-Sun Kim demonstrates that such change is possible only through God’s Spirit. Working from a feminist Asian perspective, Kim develops a constructive theology that works toward gender and racial-ethnic justice. Through the power of Spirit God, Kim says, our brokenness is healed and we can truly love and embrace the other. A light lunch will be served ($5).
The Bible at 9:30 a.m.
September 29 – “Reimagine Church: Church as the New Humanity of Jesus Christ” from the book Healing Our Broken Humanity.
Guest Leader: Rev. Dr. Grace Ji-Sun Kim, Earlham School of Religion, Earlham, IN. We live in conflicted times with newsfeeds filled with stories of inequality, division, racism and fear. We want to make a difference and see justice restored because Jesus calls us to be a peacemaking and reconciling people. But how do we do this? Grace Ji-Sun Kim, one of the leading Asian-American feminist thinkers and theologians, will help us discover how the church can be the new humanity in Jesus Christ, and so experience reconciliation, justice, unity, peace, and love.
