Liverpool: major theological conference
Comment Email Print
¬†35 theologians from four continents will meet to discuss the nature and role of the Church at the St Deiniol's Conference Centre at the First Conference of the Ecclesiological Investigations International Research Network, from 12 ≠ 15 January. The initiative arises from a shared concern that the future of the Church is of crucial importance for the well-being of all human society, not just to those who happen to call themselves Christians. Those attending include Roger Haight SJ, (Union Theological Seminary, US), Michael Fahey, (Boston College, US), Peter de Mey, (Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium), Neil Ormerod, (Australian Catholic University), Paul Pulikkan, (University of Calcutta), Mary McClintock Fulkerson, (Duke University, US) Gemma Simmonds, (Heythrop College, University of London) and Gerard Mannion, (Liverpool Hope University). Delegates are coming from India, Pakistan, the United States, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, Wales and of course England. The number of denominations represented runs well into double figures. The abiding ethos of the conference will be that the Church must be inclusive if it is to be relevant. The task of this international Network is to foster and facilitate open and pluralistic conversation and collaboration.
