God and Experience: Introducing Practical Theology
In practical theology we reflect on what we know about God and about our experience of the world we live in. Through reflection we can understand the theology that underlies and directs how we live in the world.
In this one-day workshop we will examine our understanding of God, and the ways in which that is affected by the world we experience. We will look at how God is trying to save the world, and what that means. We will examine some of the points where theology does not seem to fit in with our understanding of the world, and look at several examples, including how liberation theology has led to a change in the way we view and participate in God’s saving action.
