"Interrogating Spaces and Structures for the Empire of God - Re-Reading the Gospel of Mark and Our Contexts"

Featuring Rev. Dr. Deborah Krause
Monday January 29, 2018
9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
$35 - Lunch included
Lakeland Campus, Laun Center, Room 209

The Gospel of Mark is a powerfully constructed performance of what it means to proclaim the Empire of God in the midst of oppressive systems and structures. Engaging critical theoretical insights from Space Theory, Postcolonial Interpretation, and Empire Criticism this reading will attend to how Mark presents Jesus and others in the gospel exposing systemic oppression in various spaces and structures and working for God's justice. This study attempts both to provoke and empower participants to hear the proclamation of the good news afresh, and to press its message and purpose into our contemporary spaces and structures in order to interrogate, challenge, and transform them in collaboration with God and all God's creation.
