Come and join us to hear Prof Darrell Bock speak on the “Theology of Engagement and How to Have Difficult Conversations” at the Henderson Campus on 8 June 2022.
About the topic:
This will be a great event for Christians interested in how to better share their faith with others in a world where doing so is difficult. This lecture will consider 6 texts that help us form a theology of public engagement. It also will consider how difficult conversations work and how we can damage their value or advance them in a positive way. There will be a Q&A session following the lecture. A light supper will be served.
