“Theology in the City” is the 4th installment of an annual series of lectures aiming to form people more deeply in their faith as well as increase their theological knowledge. It was previously known as The Truth and Charity Lecture Series.
This lecture is one of a series of six throughout 2017, based around a theme of “Culture of Encounter: Seeking Common Ground”.
It will be delivered by ACU Lecturer Dr Antonia Pizzey on “Catholic Approaches to Dialogue: From Vatican II to Receptive Ecumenism”.
It will include a brief discussion about Lumen Gentium (the change to, subsists in, the shift from church as perfect society to pilgrim church, which opens the door to ecumenism), touching on Gaudium et Spes in the way the church opened itself to dialogue with the world, and John Paul II’s Ut Unum Sint where he discusses the imperative of dialogue with Christians and ecumenism as an exchange of gifts, then finally finishing on Receptive Ecumenism, which focuses on encounter as a process of humble ecclesial learning.
All lectures in this series have been approved by Brisbane Catholic Education as 1.5 hour PD Accreditation to Teach Religious Education in a Catholic School. PD Certificates will be available at the end of each lecture.
Lectures run from 7.00pm to 8.30pm, with refreshments from 6.30pm.
