Entering the Waters: A Workshop Featuring Religion and Culture Remix
July 12, 10 a.m. -2 p.m. Young people get baptized once. They live immersed in the waters of popular culture. To minister to young people, then, you can't just accept or reject popular culture - you have to help teens think with it, through it, and sometimes against it. At Emory University's Candler School of Theology, the Youth Theological Initiative (YTI) has spent 20 years wrestling with these issues. Come see what we’ve learned on Friday, July 12.
The core of the workshop is Religion and Culture Remix, a quick-hitting series of TED talks. Presenters come from 20 years of YTI staff and friends. They include professors from Candler and from Yale Divinity School; ordained ministers; and stand-out teachers from the YTI staff. They'll cover topics including:
The program and the discussions that follow should appeal to pastors, youth workers, theologians, educators, and anyone interested in the intersection of religion and culture. We also encourage youth ministers to bring interested members of their youth groups. The cost is $10 per person and includes lunch.
