Every other year the Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre, which is part of Conrad Grebel University College, teaches a course on-campus at the Toronto School of Theology. These courses bring an Anabaptist perspective to various theological topics. Recent courses include Peace Church Theology taught by Professor Jeremy Bergen and The Eucharist/Lord's Supper in Ecumenical Perspective taught by Professor John Rempel.
We are delighted that this fall, Carol Penner, Assistant Professor of Theological Studies at Conrad Grebel University College, will be teaching CGT 3511 God and Abuse: Theology Close to Home.
“Our task this evening is to go in pursuit of a mystery and its implications for how we believe and how we live our lives.” It is with these words that Dr. John D. Rempel began his lecture, “An Impossible Task: Trinitarian Theology for a Radical Church?” in front of a packed audience at the Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre on the evening of Thursday, March 14th. In his wide-ranging lecture, Rempel explored Trinitarian thinking from the 4th to the 20th century, noting the consistent challenges brought against it from “un-trinitarian expressions of belief.”
