Sunday Forum, July 1: “Race, Film and Reconciliation”

This summer while at the American Cathedral, Theologian-in-Residence Greg Garrett is writing a book on race and American film for Oxford University Press. In this Forum, he shares with us some of what he’s learned from his two years of research and from curating a national program on race and film at Washington National Cathedral. He’ll also consider how the Christian tradition intersects with the themes of films from Birth of a Nation (1915) to Get Out (2017).

Sunday Forum, June 17: “Enlightenment Now? Or Apocalypse Now?”

For this Father's Day Forum, parishioner and theologian Anne-Marie Reijnen pays tribute to the theologian Dr James H. Cone, the pioneer of Black liberation theology who died on 28 April. Fifty years ago, as campuses and inner cities erupted in revolutionary turmoil, here in France and in the USA, a young theologian asked himself how the Black churches should  respond to the cries of Black power. Following in the footsteps of his own mothers and fathers in the Black church, following great thinkers and activists like WEB DuBois, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, James Cone articulated the first liberation theology, a contextual response of African American Christian faith to affirm the redemption of God given to all, with the power to resist oppression . 9:45am in the Fleetwood Room, Sunday June 17, American Cathedral.

Sunday Forum, June 10: “Enlightenment Now? Or Apocalypse Now?”

Harvard Psychology Professor Steven Pinker’s latest book, Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism and Progress, documents worldwide improvements in peace, wealth, health, longevity, education, literacy, freedom, democracy, and well-being over many centuries. Pinker insists that religion has impeded this progress, while crediting science and the ideas of 18th-century Enlightenment thinkers with driving it forward. Begging to differ, parishioner and biochemist Peter Brooks argues that the Judeo-Christian tradition has made a fundamental contribution to human flourishing. 9:45am in the Fleetwood Room, Sunday June 10, American Cathedral.
