Jason Peters: Faith & Works of Wendell Berry, Session Three

This is the third part of Jason Peter’s seminar track from Cornerstone 2009.

 

One of America’s greatest social critics, essayists and poets, Wendell Berry is a man-of-letters, farmer, and modern-day prophet. More than ever, Berry offers a faithful witness against a standard of living neither practically sustainable nor morally defensible. This seminar explores the vision of simplicity that unifies Berry’s multi-faceted life and works, and the faith that drives it.

Keith Wasserman: Homelessness: The View From the Other Side, Session Two

This is the second part of Keith Wasserman’s seminar track from Cornerstone 2009.

 

Creatively engaging the culture of poverty with the Gospel for three decades, Keith Wasserman has regularly gone homeless by choice in various US cities to “see from the other side”. In this seminar, Keith will share what he’s learned from the poor and from ministry with the poor both from his experiences on the streets and from the trenches of developing an intentional Christian community that lives out the call of Jesus to love our neighbors in poverty.

Soong-Chan Rah: A Theology of Suffering & Celebration, Session Two

This is the second part of Soong-Chan Rah’s seminar track from Cornerstone 2009.

 

The theology of history’s “haves” is inevitably shaped by interests vested in affirming and maintaining privilege – meanwhile creating ever more distance from history’s “have-nots.” This seminar wrestles with our notions of power and privilege as related to our notion of Christ, seeking to listen to the Gospel as it meets us at the intersection of celebration and suffering.

Terry Wandtke: Watchmen and Ubermensch, Session Two

This is the second part of Terry Wandtke’s seminar track from Cornerstone 2009.

 

Alan Moore’s Watchmen offered a self-reflective indictment of hitherto unquestioned superhero fundamentals: power and reckless violence — paving the way, ironically, for a wave of even more nihilistic comic book heroes. This seminar explores this most interesting conversation in contemporary comics and graphic novels, examining larger questions implicit in super powers.
