TMTC Public Lecture Packs the House

packed lecture room

“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.”

A packed house filled the Jay Boardroom at the Toronto School of Theology on Thursday, March 14th for the 2019 TMTC Public Lecture delivered by TMTC Senior Fellow Dr. John D. Rempel with a response from Dr. P. Travis Kroeker of McMaster University. Entitled "An Impossible Task: Trinitarian Theology for a Radical Church?" the lecture made a case for historic Trinitarianism in outline form, examined the historical and theological dynamics of Mennonite anti-Trinitarianism via three case studies, and offered samples of late 20th century Trinitarian thought as the most adequate foundation for a radical church. For those of you that were not able to attend, we are pleased to make a recording of the lecture available here.

call for proposals

In 2019, the Mennonite Scholars and Friends Forum at AAR/SBL will be focusing on the theme of “Migration, Borders, and Belonging.” The Program Committee is delighted to announce that the first part of the forum will be devoted to hearing reflections from authors of two recent books on this topic: Jennifer Graber, author of The Gods of Indian Country: Religion and the Struggle for the American West (Oxford University Press, 2018), and Felipe Hinojosa, author of Latino Mennonites: Civil Rights, Faith, and Evangelical Culture (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2014). The second part of the forum will be devoted to hearing from respondents and the Program Committee invites proposals for reflections on the contribution of one or both of these works in relation to the forum’s theme.
