Events for February 21, 2013

Iliff on the Road: Prof. Debbie Creamer, Fort Worth, Tex

February 21, 2013

Description: Prof. Debbie Creamer, Iliff interim dean, will be speaking at Brite Divinity School and Texas Christian University, during three days of worship, lectures, workshops and a world-class organ recital. The event is hosted by University Christian Church.

Salvation and physical wholeness appear to be linked in much of scripture and the church’s tradition. The Ministry Week 2013 conference explores some of the pastoral challenges encountered in relating salvation and healing. How do we address hidden wounds? What does salvation or healing mean for the chronically ill or those who view their impairments as part of who they are and not something to be healed? Rita Brock examines moral injury, a hidden wound experienced by some combat veterans. Deborah Creamer, Iliff interim dean, considers how Christians have talked about disability and asks what it would mean for our liturgy, teaching, and preaching if we reconsidered what is meant by normative and flip it around so that we start from our own experiences of disability instead of it being an exception. Jeremy Schipper examines healing stories from Hebrew scripture in light of disability studies. Anthony Bailey brings his background in parish ministry, community transformation, and pastoral counseling to the Wells Sermons.

As this event is a gift from Brite and TCU, there is no general registration fee; however, pre-registration is encouraged, as we anticipate a large attendance. We look forward to seeing you at Ministers Week 2013!
