"Salvation & the Community of Faith"
Presenter: Dr. Nancy Pineda-Madrid, PhD
As the community of faith, we are called to preach the gospel in today’s world, a world in need of salvation. The world remains deaf to the life-giving message of Jesus Christ to the degree that it fails to recognize its need for salvation. This year’s institute examines the ways in which human beings become aware of their need for salvation, with particular attention to the diversity of the church. How does the diversity of the church contribute to our experience of salvation in history? What are the various ways in which the Catholic faith has understood salvation? How does the community of faith mediate salvation in the world? This course will draw on Pope Francis’ Evangelii Gaudium. Thursday, 5 p.m. – Sunday, noon meal. Cost: $300.
