The Church and the Spirit of Racial Capitalism
Wednesday, November 8th at 6:30pm EST
Over the past five years, few subjects have divided Americans more than race. In his recent book Asian Americans and the Spirit of Racial Capitalism, Baylor professor Jonathan Tran challenges us to look beyond prevailing accounts of racial identity. What are the strengths and weaknesses of how Americans think about race—and what role should the church play in bringing us together? Join us as three leading theological figures consider these questions and more, and help us chart a path toward a more common life together.
This event will be held in-person at the National Press Club (529 14th St. NW, 13th Floor Washington, DC 20045). Seats are limited, so please register as soon as possible to attend this panel event. For any questions, contact Beth_Butler1@Baylor.edu.
The Church in the Public Square: A Three-Part Conversation Series
Is there a relevant conversation to be had between church and state as we navigate loneliness, economic disparity, loss of meaning and anxiety? What is the role and place of the Christian Church in the broader society? What posture ought the Christian Church have in relation to the body politic? Quiet refuge for the isolated? Ancient wellspring of divine wisdom? Spiritually transformative presence? Front-line justice fighter?
Join us for a three-part conversation series on these questions, and more. All three conversations will take place at 5pm ET at The Church of the Ascension and St. Agnes (1217 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC 20005). See below for information about the three events:
- September 13th -- Brandon Paradise in conversation with Sam Kimbriel
- October 25th -- David Corey on the Common Purpose of the Church
- December 6th -- Ian Rowe in conversation with Katherine Sonderreger, moderated by David Corey
We hope you'll join us for one (or all) of these meaningful conversations.
