We will gather to explore what is now possible in theological education – in our classrooms, in our course design, in our spiritual lives, in our pedagogy and scholarship as well as in our common life within institutions – that perhaps didn’t seem possible before COVID-19. How has the present pandemic catalyzed our imaginations by re-thinking theological education during this time? We will convene conversations that invite us to listen to our lives in this moment as we discern new paths.
