Theology on the West Island: Lent 2017
An Initiative of The McGill School of Religious Studies
The Montreal Diocesan Theological College
Hosted by the Parish of St Andrew and St Mark
Sundays March 5, 12, and 19, Noon – 1:30pm
A light lunch will be served at noon (free will offering gladly accepted), sessions begin at 12:30pm
In three sessions of thought provoking exchanges we engage with An Other Kingdom: Departing the Consumer Culture by Peter Block, Walter Brueggemann and John McKnight.
Look at how “our core economic beliefs have produced a culture that makes poverty, violence, ill health, and fragile economic systems seem inevitable.”
Reflect on what our faith has to say about the human and environmental impact of the consumer society we have created.
Discuss how our faith calls to depart from consumer culture into “an other kingdom” ruled by a covenant of neighborly love.
Led by: The Rev. Professor Patricia G. Kirkpatrick, (School of Religious Studies, McGill University), The Rev. Dr. Karen Egan (Interim Principal. Montreal Diocesan Theological College), and The Rev. Elizabeth Welch (Incumbent, St. Andrew and St. Mark)
