FREE The question “Who is my neighbour?” continues to challenge us today, in a world where we have become suspicious of people who are different from us, whether in skin colour, language, socio-economic class, or religion. The Christian practice of hospitality has deep theological and historical roots, and has been a basis for sustainable ministry and outreach.
We regret that Dr Christine Pohl cannot join us 'live' due to a medical emergency. Instead, we will watch a video of a talk she gave on hospitality. Rev Ivan Tan, who studied the ethics of hospitality with Dr Pohl at Asbury Theological Seminary, will join the panel for discussion on the topic and respond to questions.
Location: Zoom Classroom , own study place
Lecturer : Christine Pohl
Dr Pohl was Professor Emerita of Church in Society at Asbury Theological Seminary. She retired in 2018 having taught there for close to 30 years. She first learned the practices of hospitality from her grandparents, and that inspired her life-long research and writing on the subject. She has written Making Room: Recovering Hospitality as Christian Tradition (Eerdmans, 1999) and Living into Community: Cultivating Practices that Sustain Us (Eerdmans, 2012).
