Lecture topic: Church in Ordinary Time: A Wisdom Ecclesiology

Speaker: Professor Amy Platinga Pauw, Louisville Presbyterian Seminary

Time/date: 7.30pm, Thursday July 18th

Location: Brunswick Uniting Church, 214 Sydney Road, Brunswick (cnr Sydney Road and Merri Street). The lecture will also be livestreamed via Facebook.

About the Lecture: The doctrine of creation has been missing in most theological accounts of the church. That has made it harder for Christians to make common cause with others in a religiously pluralistic world and to address the ecological threat we all face as creatures. I propose a wisdom ecclesiology that takes the doctrine of creation seriously in thinking about the church.

About the Lecturer: Amy Plantinga Pauw is the Henry P. Mobley Professor of Doctrinal Theology at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. She has written widely in Reformed theology and with Serene Jones she editor she is the editor of Feminist and Womanist Essays in Reformed Dogmatics. She is also the general editor of the Belief series, a 36-volume theological commentary on scripture published by Westminster John Knox Press, and is the author of the volume on Ecclesiastes and Proverbs. Her book on ecclesiology, Church in Ordinary Time: Wisdom Ecclesiology offers a novel appeal to feminist, wisdom, liturgical and classical theologies to re-frame how we think about the church and its engagement with the world. She is currently working on a project on theological aesthetics.
