I was honored to be invited to speak in another Church of the Brethren Webinar to explore Holy Spirit as ‘mover and shaker of ideas and actions’
Church of the Brethren Newsline
July 17, 2020
The Office of Ministry is sponsoring a webinar titled “Exploring the Holy Spirit: Mover and Shaker of Ideas and Actions” on July 30 from 1-2 p.m. (Eastern time). Leading the event will be Grace Ji-Sun Kim, professor of theology at Earlham School of Religion, and Denise Kettering-Lane, associate professor of Brethren Studies at Bethany Theological Seminary. Both schools are located in Richmond, Ind.
Kim and Kettering-Lane will explore the Holy Spirit’s significance within various Christian traditions including the Church of the Brethren.
“The Spirit presents itself to many as an enigma,” said an announcement. “Its existence is mysterious and complex, generating misunderstandings and unawareness of its true purpose. The Spirit’s ambiguous nature opens the opportunity for study to unearth the exciting truths that it holds. The Spirit is present in our world in various forms and invites us to work for climate justice, racial justice, and gender justice. It stirs us to work toward new kinships with God that are sustainable, just, and whole. The Spirit empowers, sustains, and encourages us to live out our call and ministry.”
To participate in the event register for the webinar at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/3915948194002/WN_wTN_DpDLS1yzHOOKMKAdJQ . Church of the Brethren ministers may earn 0.1 CEU of continuing education credit at no cost from the Brethren Academy for Ministerial Leadership.
