Advent Series

December 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Theological Reflections on Nationhood: The nation as a modern concept.  

Bishop Thomas E. Breidenthal explores the history of nationalism and the dangers it presents to our society today. The series begins with considering the concept of nationhood as it emerged in the early modern era (1400-1600 CE), focusing on the role this concept played in the emergence of Anglicanism. It then moves on to the twentieth century struggle between fascism and democracy, with particular attention to the work and witness of German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The bishop wraps up the series on international law and its Biblical roots.

Tonight’s class is the first in a three-week series.

Topics for the other evenings in this series:
Week 2: Being a nation under God (or not)
Week 3: Internationalism
