What’s the Purpose of a Creed in a Pluralistic World?
February 21 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The St James’ Institute presents: What’s the Purpose of a Creed in a Pluralistic World?
Sunday 21 February | 2:00pm-4:00pm | St James’ Hall | $25
The Apostles’ Creed was in circulation as early as the second century. The Nicene Creed was adopted in 325. The Chalcedonian Definition was accepted in 451. Do these ancient statements of belief still have a useful function in 2021? Is dogma relevant for modern faith?
These complex questions will be addressed by Associate Professor Ben Myers, author of The Apostles’ Creed: A Guide to the Ancient Catechism. This is the book we will be reading for our Lent Studies, so this lecture is an ideal opportunity to meet the author! In addition to his expertise in early Christian literature, Dr Myers has written on Anglican theology including Christ the Stranger: The Theology of Rowan Williams.
