Peacemaking in a Pluralistic Age Conference
June 27 @ 8:00 am - 7:30 pm$30
The Braswell World Religions and Global Cultures Center at Campbell University Divinity School will sponsor an one-day conference on June 27 this year. The theme of our conference is “Peacemaking in a Pluralistic Age.”
The modern era is punctuated by unrest, and the minds of men and women are torn by the passion of wars. There are suspicion, jealousy and fear in our public discourse everywhere. Solemn responsibility rests upon all of us as peoples of faith to come together and talk about peacemaking. In this time of political uncertainty and anxiety, it seems important to direct our minds away from wars, and focus our attention on waging peace.
At the conference, we will work together to achieve a practical approach to peacemaking process in the modern era, and the conference will be intellectually stimulating and spiritually uplifting.
Can we imagine a world without the tension caused by division in religions? Can we be the apostles and the embodiments of the last prayer of Jesus to God for his disciples in John’s Gospel chapter 17:11? “And now I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are one.”
