Weaving together stories drawn from years of ministry and ethnographic research in a parish in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood, in this lecture Professor Susan Bigelow Reynolds reflects on what it means to do theology in community. Lifting up the theological agency of communities on the margins of church and society, it invites us to rethink our understanding of how—and where—the work of theology unfolds.

  Join us for a conversation with Dr. Kristin Colberg and Dr. Ormond Rush, both members of the synod's theological commission and participants in the writing of the Document for the Continental Stage of the Synod (DCS). Learn from these internationally recognized scholars about their understanding of synodality, the resistance it’s faced, their experiences of participating in this process, and what they anticipate for the gathering of bishops in Rome in October 2023. This promises to be an exciting conversation that you won't want to miss!
