I’ve been invited to participate again in the Film, Faith and Justice Festival. Last year I moderated a panel discussion on immigration issues. This is the 3rd festival that The Other Journal puts together. Each one of them have been provocative and challenging.
Some of the issues that will be address this year will be poverty, patriotism and faith, the myth of redemptive violence, and violent constructions of race. The speakers for this year are:
- Chris Heuertz of Word Made Flesh
- Eugene McCarraher of Villanova University
- Rita Brock who is the Co-Director of Faith Voices for the Common Good
- J. Kameron Carter of Duke Divinity School
I highly recommend this event. Hope to see you there. Follow the link below for more info about the films and presenters.
The Other Journal at Mars Hill Graduate School :: Film Faith and Justice 2008
Film, Faith, and Justice is a forum exploring the relationship between theology and social justice.
As host to the Traveling Human Rights Watch Film Festival, this forum utilizes film, keynote lectures, and discussion panels to engage modern issues of faith and social justice critical to countering modern exploitation and injustice.
