“Faith in the Commons: Becoming Neighbours includes the Personal and the Political”
Thursday, February 13, 2020
Lecture: 7:00 pm
Location: Regis College, St Joseph’s Chapel, 100 Wellesley Street W, Toronto.
One of the most exciting developments in political theology is the renewed awareness that the “neighbour” creates a new space “in-between” the personal and the political. Professor Leddy will illustrate and explore how becoming neighbours summons new forms of spirituality and politics and provides common ground for interfaith and cross-cultural relationships.
Presented by Dr. Mary Jo Leddy, Romero House Founder and Regis College Professor
Respondents: Shahid Akhtar & Dr. Barbara Landau, Co-Chairs, Canadian Association of Jews and Muslims
Moderator: Dr. Michael Stoeber, Scarboro Missions Chair in Interreligious Dialogue, Regis College
The 8:30 PM reception following the Lecture will also include the reception for the Art Exhibit “Neighbourhood Earth,” on display all of February 2020 at Regis College.
The programming offered by the “Msgr. John Mary Fraser Centre of Practical Theology” (or the “Scarboro Missions Chair of Inter-religious Dialogue”) was made possible through the Scarboro Missions Legacy. Scarboro Missions is a Society of Apostolic Life of Canadian Catholics, priests and laity, motivated by the Spirit and dedicated to the person, teaching, and mission of Jesus Christ as expressed in his words: “I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.” (John 10:10).
