The present Covid-19 pandemic has been the cause of massive social, economic, and religious dislocation. Its longer-term implications remain unclear. At this difficult time, theologians have a responsibility to draw upon the sources of our faith to provide insights from our religious traditions from which people both inside and outside the church may draw hope and meaning. One of the strengths of the SCD in this regard is that it draws on various Christian faith traditions, Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox, bringing a richness to the reflections that can speak to a wider ecclesial audience.
For 2020-21, the Theology Research Network (TRN) has commenced its two-year cycle of seminars on the topic, Theologising in the Shadow of a Pandemic. This will culminate in a conference late in 2021. There will be six seminars operating through Zoom, three in each year.
Visit TRN to learn more about upcoming events, seminar papers and seminars, and more. The TRN welcomes diverse participation in their conversations from a variety of perspectives. There is no formal membership to join.
If you are interested in being a part of the seminars, collaborating with the TRN, or just want to know more email [email protected].
