We are now accepting applications for the Building Life-Affirming Communities: Face To Face with the many poor and the many faiths in Asia. This will be held on 2nd September to 15th October 2016 and will be conducted in two locations namely Bishop’s College in Kolkata and Henry Martin Institute in Hyderabad, India.
Face to Face is a seven-week programme that aims to invite the students preparing for ministry in cultural, social, theological and contextual realities to understand, to motivate and to engage with the realities on how the fullness of life is being denied to the large majority of the world’s population.
Through this Programme, the participants will come face to face with the issues on poverty and pluralism, specifically within the Asian context of many religions and many poor. This will also provide them opportunities to engage in a global dialogue on theology, spirituality and mission through intercultural exchange and theological reflection by facilitating Immersion Programmes, Bible Studies and Seminars that would enable them to reflect on doing mission in the context of Empire.
Please find enclosed the Programme Brief and the application form. Please feel free to reproduce them for information dissemination.
Closing date is on 15th July 2016.
