Planetary conviviality, human flourishing...

Error message

You may casually dismiss this stuff, but this is the future of Evangelical religion. It will be toned down, somewhat, when it's taken out there to the hinterlands, and localized, but this sort of pantheistic, radically subjective, mystical ad copy is not transparently evil to people acclimated to Christian religion by men like Tim Keller. They're good prep for emotive blather such as "planetary conviviality."

Again, from Union Theological Seminary's e-mail update:

FORREST CHURCH MEMORIAL LECTURE: Dr. Keller [not Tim] develops the relational potential of a theology of becoming. Her books reconfigure ancient symbols of divinity for the sake of a planetary conviviality—a life together, across vast webs of difference...

THE ART OF INCLUSION; A Collaborative Art Project: Layered on multiple panels of hand made paper from recycled Bibles, the Art of Inclusion is an interactive, multimedia installation that weaves together imagination, emotion, and thought about a subject most often encountered in the context of inherited settings and weighted by the past experience of others: 'God'. Using social media as a microphone, the artist, Diana Doherty, invites us, regardless of age, race, religion, gender identity, color, disability, sexual orientation, or national origin, to respond to the question, "What is God to you?” Responses will be collected, recorded, and embedded directly as a sound feed in the visual installation.
