Theology Update for the Week of February 10

Theology Class, “Creation Justice: Justice as a Right Relationship.”

On Sunday, February 10, at 10 am we will welcome a special guest, the Rev. Dr. K. Christine Pae, from Denison University, to give a presentation on Justice in the Scriptures from a the perspective of her expertise in Christian ethics. The title is: Creation Justice: Justice as a Right Relationship.

The Rev. Dr. K. Christine Pae is Associate Professor of Religion and Ethics and Chair of the Religion Department at Denison University, Granville, Ohio. Her teaching and research include Christian social ethics, transnational feminist ethics, spiritual activism, and the ethics of peace and war. A Korean native, the Rev. Pae received her Ph.D. in Christian Social Ethics from Union Theological Seminary, and her M.Div. from Yale Divinity School.

Also, we will have a Theology Evening Lecture Series very soon. On Wednesday, February 13 at 6:30-8pm in Andrew Hall, Professor Jeremy Waldron will begin a series on “Biblical Justice,” focusing mainly on the concepts of judgment, justice, and social justice in the writings of the prophets.

The first session, on February 13, will focus on the prophet Amos and the place of justice in his nine chapters. Amos is a short book (7 or 8 pages) and it will be helpful if participants can read it through in advance. Two other classes will follow on Wednesday, February 20 and Wednesday, February 27.

Everyone is welcome.
