The Role of the Church in Today's Society
Thursday, November 14, 2013
Unity Institute® and Seminary presents a Lyceum each year, presentations of thought-provoking academic papers by selected seminary students and religious scholars about themes with global implications in spirituality, theology, pastoral studies, and more. One topic, "Religion and Social Issues: The Role of the Church in Today’s Society," focuses on theological ethics and social problems or related themes from various communities of faith, including non-Western traditions. LTAI guest panelists—Rev. Claudell County and Rev. Dr. Jesse Tanner, both UI faculty members, plus LTAI producer and recent UI graduate Rev. Rachel Simpson—discuss issues related to this topic.
