Intersection The Joy of Educating for the Common Good

"The Joy of Educating for the Common Good"
October 23, 2013

This panel assembled as part of a series on Joy in celebration of the retirement of President Philip Amerson.  This panel of prominent theological academics and practitioners were asked to address the questions, “What does it mean to evoke the idea of the common good such that it might become an object of our teaching? What does it mean to education in such a way that we might vivify already held notions of the common good? How might we in theological education transgress contemporary culture and ecclesial tendencies to treat the idea of the common good as little more than sentimental bosh?” 
  • Rev. Dr. Tom Porter, Just Peace Center for Mediation and Conflict Transformation,
  • Dr. Luis Rivera-Rodriguiz, Vice President and Academic Dean, Garrett-Evangelical Seminary
  • Dr. Shanta Premawardhana, President of SCUPE
  • Dr. Sara Wenger Shenk, President of Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary
