Public Theology: The Work of Jesus

During the winter and spring months, we will be exploring Christianity as a public faith that prioritizes the common good – with an interdisciplinary approach drawing on history, politics, science, as well as religion – to understand and address common obstacles to human flourishing for the good of the world.

  • February: Gender and Justice 
  • March: Art and Justice 
  • April: Justice in a Multi-Faith World 
  • May: Biography, Storytelling, and Justice 

Stay tuned for more info about Faith and Justice group meetings at CCSF! In the meantime, a great way to get started is to join the F+J Network at a special CCSF rate of $1/month. 

Despite Jesus proclaiming good news for all people and including women in ways that were radical for his context, Christianity has too often served to perpetuate patriarchy and even misogyny. What is the relationship between Christian faith and gender, sexuality, and justice? How can Christian spirituality heal and restore what has been broken in the most intimate areas of our life?

Because justice calls forth creativity in building a new, better world in ways that our intellects can hardly imagine today, artists can offer critical contributions. If the status quo seems permanent to some of us, artists among us have always known better. How do creatives deepen and widen our perspective on justice? We will learn from artists already doing the work of making new things.

Jesus showed deep interest in building relationships with people who held different viewpoints of the world, not in eradicating their worldviews. How is learning about world Christianity (or Christianities) essential for the work of justice? What about inter-religious dialogue and relationships? What does translation, contextualization, and epistemological humility have to do with the call of Christian faith to share good news?

Just as there is breathing in and breathing out, the inward journey leads to the outward journey in the spiritual life. We’ll learn about how life with God moves us out toward the world by seeing once more how the good news of Christianity is good news for all people.
