In every age, Christians have sought to bear witness to the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ while translating it into radically different cultural, political, and social contexts. New forms of the body of Christ emerge from theologians, pastors, artists, and those confronting practical issues of living the faith. These varied expressions anticipate the church described in Scripture as “a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb.” Faithfully re-imagining our lives before the throne of Christ, the unmoving center of our community, is essential for all who hope in the Kingdom of God.

The Center for Christian Discernment & Academic Leadership at Georgetown College welcome proposals (300 words) from pastors, scholars, students, or practitioners for papers (20 minutes read time)  or panel discussions (40 minutes) on topics such as Christian faith in a global context, creative expressions of faith, current challenges and opportunities for Christian practice, ethics, theology, or the work of the invited speakers.  Deadline is Sept. 1, 2013 via email: roger_ward@georgetowncollege.edu
