Lessons on Justice from the Book of Romans Public Lecture

October 05, 2020
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Virtual

The theme of justice pervades the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. And all Christians agree that justice is important. We often disagree, however, about what justice means, both in Scripture and for us today. Many turn to Old Testament laws, the prophets, and the life of Jesus to find biblical guidance on justice, but few think of searching the letters of Paul. Readers frequently miss a key source, a writing in which justice is actually the central concern: the book of Romans.

This public lecture is presented by Dr. Douglas Harink. Harink has been a faculty member at The King’s University for nearly three decades. During that time he has taught in the areas of historical and modern theology, Christian ethics, theology of religions, theology of creation, theology and science, and Paul’s letters and theology.

When Pandemic Meets Poverty Public Lecture

October 19, 2020
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Virtual

While the pandemic has disrupted the lives of many North Americans, its effect on people living in poverty is even more devastating.  The pandemic is both exposing and exacerbating inequalities and injustice in communities of need.  Join Ida Mutoigo, Director of World Renew Canada, and Roy Berkenbosch, former director of The Micah Centre as they discuss the impact of the pandemic on food security and livelihood, women’s rights, refugees and more.  Discover also how Christian community development organizations like World Renew are meeting the challenges of COVID-19.

Ida is the first female director to be appointed to the role of international Director of World Renew, a role that she has filled since 2006.  She has served in various roles within World Renew for over 30 years:   as a program consultant, Uganda Country Director, East and Southern Africa Regional Team Leader and ServiceLink Coordinator for CRCNA. In addition to living out her calling and passion for justice and mercy in these roles, Ida teaches a community development course at Redeemer and served in volunteer roles as pastoral elder, Classis Interim Committee member and chair of council for Immanuel CRC in Hamilton.  She also represents World Renew and serves as a board member in two major international networks: ACT Alliance and Integral Alliance. Ida is married to James Mutoigo and blessed with three young adult children, Violet, Bryant and Angela.

Roy is the recently retired founding director of the Micah Centre at The King’s University where he also taught theology for many years.  Roy served with World Renew in Bangladesh and continues to provide theological support to partners and staff there and elsewhere.  Roy volunteers in various contexts to promote justice, mercy and a humble stumble with God. With his wife Grace, Roy enjoys life on ‘Yellow Dog Acres’ where they enjoy time with friends and family and indulge their interest in growing good things to eat.

John A’s Severed Head and the Politics of Public Memory Public Lecture

October 26, 2020
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Virtual

Around the world statues have been pulled down or vandalized in protests against the way that these monuments tell the story of our shared history. Similar controversies have surrounded movements to re-name streets, schools, and neighbourhoods. As is often the case, these events and the public responses to them have generally generated more heat than light, but they do clearly show that we need to think deeply about how the way we tell our histories shapes our identities, our institutions, and even our public policy. This lecture will reflect on the challenges of “public memory”, and will suggest a way of deciding how we should tell our stories in public spaces that goes beyond a cycle of provocation and counter-provocation.

This public lecture is presented by Dr. Micheal DeMoor. He teaches in the Politics, History, and Economics Program at King’s and is Dean of Social Sciences in his spare time. He has an abiding concern with the role of art in our public life and actually thinks that the Talus Balls by the Quesnell Bridge are pretty great.
