The St. Luke’s Forum: John Cobb: Pando Theology
Ed interviews John Cobb, regarded as the preeminent scholar in the field of process philosophy and process theology. Process theology views God as “relational, present in every moment of our lives and in all entities and levels of being. The world is interconnected, in effect a giant ecosystem where what harms or blesses one, harms or blesses all.” A unifying theme of Cobb’s work is his emphasis on ecological interdependence—the idea that every part of the ecosystem is reliant on all the other parts. Cobb has argued that humanity’s most urgent task is to preserve the world on which it lives and depends.

The 10-part series is built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories.This series is open to all, and especially designed to help white people talk with other white people about racism, but you must pre-register as space is limited.

Bible Study with Tony Johns
Mondays from 7-8 p.m. | September 14 - November 2
Many people today regard Revelation as the most difficult book in the New Testament to understand. It is full of strange, lurid, and some-times bizarre and violent imagery. As a result, those who are quite at home in the Gospels, Acts and Paul find themselves tiptoeing around Revelation.But Revelation offers one of the clearest and sharpest visions of God’s ultimate purpose for the whole creation and of the way in which the powerful forces of evil, at work in a thousand ways, can be and are being overthrown through the victory of Jesus the Messiah and the consequent costly victory of his followers. Studying Revelation in context clarifies its message to an early church facing severe crisis.Its relevance for today is not in prophetic visions, but in its affirmation of victory and hope.
