Alumni/ae and Friends Day 2014
For 57 years, Claremont School of Theology has pioneered fresh expressions of the Christian faith. We will celebrate that legacy when “Alumni/ae and Friends Day” returns for two full days of theological enrichment. On Wednesday, March 12, and Thursday, March 13, we will gather as former students, current students, and friends of the institution to engage the incredible wealth of practical and theoretical knowledge emerging from Claremont School of Theology. Faculty will join with Doctoral students to share new developments in multi-religious engagement, sexual diversity within faith communities, environmental concerns, Process Theologies, and spiritual formation.
In exploring adventurous theologies, Claremont School of Theology has refused submission to the dogmatic drag of archaic Christian doctrine through a radical openness to God’s still speaking voice. In 2014, these vibrant edges of the Christian tradition remain alive and well here at Claremont School of Theology. By weaving together the complexities of feminist thought, Process philosophy, environmentalism, and multi-religious education, this institution has much to offer in way of transforming the world.
Dr. John Cobb, founding member of Claremont School of Theology, will present for this year’s Jean L. Wickett lecture: “Connecting the Revolutionary Ontology of Process Philosophy with the Practicality of Church Leadership.” The Jean L. Wickett Lecture was established in 1982 by the Wickett family in memory of Mrs. Jean L. Wickett, a lifelong United Methodist lay woman and passionate advocate for the continued education of laity and clergy to enhance the vitality of the local church.
We hope to provide space for courageous, imaginative, and participative social justice work, creative expression, spiritual practice, and captivating conversation – all with the hope of sparking something in you, so that you can continue to do what you love in the communities of faith you love and lead.
