You are invited to the next UQ Studies in Religion Research Seminar

Presenter: Dr David Benson Date: Friday 24 June Time: 2pm
Venue: Room E319 in the Forgan Smith Building, UQ. St Lucia

What is education for? Is there a sufficiently inclusive and encompassing Christian vision of education for all citizens in our simultaneously secular and
religious pluralistic democracy? In this seminar, Dave suggests a potentially unifying metaphor capable of sparking our imagination and serving our neighbour.
We adopt a narrative theological stance to direct our educational efforts toward serving the key dimensions of shalom that together comprise humanity’s
educational journey of growth under divine tutelage. “God’s Curriculum” helps us reimagine Christian education as a pilgrimage, where diverse learners are
drawn forward by desire as together they walk toward the promised garden-city of peace.
