You won’t want to miss this opportunity to be in conversation with James Alison. Living Table UCC is honored to host James for an evening of envisioning a new future for church. Mark your calendars now (March 22 @630pm Central) and share this post to invite your friends!
What might it mean to recover “catholicity” (small c) as institutions crumble? And can Christianity be reimagined as something that helps us, both socially and individually to deal with shame, rather than reproduce and magnify it? James will share something of how he is getting a sense of “where we are now” and ask us where we would like to take it.
About James Alison
James Alison is a Catholic Priest, theologian and author. He earned his doctorate from the Jesuit Faculty in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. James has lived in many countries and works as an itinerant preacher, lecturer and retreat giver. His professional life has been dedicated to the interpretation for theology of the thought of René Girard, and he has a number of books to show for it. Over the years James has firmly but gently faced down Church authority on matters gay and lived to tell the tale. Learn more about James and his writing on the author’s website. When not on the road he lives in Madrid with the French Bulldog, Nicholas.
