"Life is a Mystery: Confessions of a Liberal Theologian"

Thursday March 13, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Douglas Ottati, Craig Family Distinguished Professor of Reformed Theology & Justice
Davidson College, NC

Life in all its complexity is increasingly open to investigation, yet life as we experience it remains a mystery. Scientific discoveries, complex economies, and changing social realities all demand our attention, challenge our assumptions, and provoke us to action. Liberal Protestant theology affirms this diversity in our experience without accepting the fragmentation of our knowing and acting. The ancient affirmation of God the Creator continues to give unity to the many worlds of our experience and allows the mystery at the center to remain a source of hope.
