All Lectures will take place at:

Topic for the weekend - Changing Perceptions: Earth, Self, God

The Southern Progressive Alliance for Exploring Religion (SPAFER) and Edgewood Presbyterian Church are partnering with the Jesus Seminar on the Road program to ask how new scientific insights are changing the way people conceive of the earth, the human self, and the divine. The event is led by guest scholars Clayton Crockett of the University of Central Arkansas and Susan Elliott, a writer and environmental activist based in Red Lodge, Montana.

The program, entitled “Changing Perceptions: Earth, Self, God,” kicks off with a lecture on Friday, February 17th, 7:30–9 pm, and continues on Saturday, February 18th, with a series of daytime sessions 9:30 am – 4 pm. Beginning with an overview of how human relationships with the earth have changed from ancient to modern times, Elliott and Crockett will move on to ancient and modern conceptions of the self. The event will conclude by tackling the question of God’s meaning and value, if any, for the future.

All events take place at Edgewood Presbyterian Church, 850 Oxmoor Road, Homewood, AL 35209. Prices are $20 for the Friday evening lecture, $30 for each morning and afternoon session on Saturday, or $60 for the whole weekend. This event qualifies for Continuing Education Units for clergy and other educators. Registration is accepted online and at the door (credit cards accepted).
