Religious Naturalism, Sacred Humanity, And God
presided by Karen Bray
presented by Carol Wayne White
commentated by Bart Campolo
Three separate sessions were held for the Fall 2017 Seminar on God and the Human Future and this is Session Two. If you are looking to purchase an audio set of all three sessions, or would like to purchase the CDs, please click here.
The Seminar on God and the Human Future tackled topics of Atheism, Religious Naturalism, and Christian Nationalism. In the first two sessions, spiritual leader Bart Campolo advocated religious naturalism for its relational approach to spiritual practice and its potential to provide an alternative for a nonbelieving or non-religious audience. In dialogue with John D. Caputo of Syracuse University and Carol Wayne White of Bucknell University, the panel explored religious naturalism in light of “weak theology,” and connected it to critical race theory, highlighting it as a resource for contemporary social movements.
This discussion took place at the Westar Institute Fall 2017 National Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts.
