The subtitle to this Global Education presentation is: Viewing the World through Different Lenses...and Changing Your Own Prescription. Brief annotated slide shows on four aspects of life viewed differently in different cultures will serve to introduce student speakers each giving a talk on how he or she was struck by the different "lenses" through which their new host culture viewed one of these aspects of life, but then coming to a place of viewing the world themselves through these new lenses.

Convocation - The Christian Life in Dialogue: Reconciling The Racial Divide
Walter Strickland

Presentation by Professor Walter Strickland, Special Advisor to the President for Diversity at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

Click to read more  Click to read more

About the speaker: Walter Strickland serves as Special Advisor the President for Diversity and Instructor of Theology at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.  Walter’s passion is for people from every culture to fully embody the gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives.  Walter holds a BA from Cedarville University, an MDiv and ThM from Southeastern Seminary, and is pursuing a PhD in theology from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.  Walter is an Associate Research Fellow for the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (of the SBC), and he recently finished book the doctrine of vocation entitled Every Waking Hour: An introduction to Calling and Vocation for Christians.  Walter and his lovely wife Stephanie live in Wake Forest, NC with their children.

 



Convocation presentation summary from the speaker:  Iron sharpens iron most acutely across the lines of difference.  Historically, the church has recognized this forge of spiritual strength and has reaped its benefit in specific ways, one example is, older men teaching younger men (2 Tim. 2:2), and older women teaching younger women (Titus 2).  However, the American church has largely forgone the opportunity to learn across the lines of race and class.  How are we to embrace and apply these new vistas of spiritual and theological development?  Let’s explore these ideas together.

Convocation - How is God's Creation calling you into relationship
Frank Molteno

Convocation presentation by Frank Molteno

Click to read more  Click to read more

Frank Molteno will be speaking on caring for creation and about environmental matters more broadly; the idea of broadening the notion of rights beyond human beings and even beyond animals to nature. He currently is a coordinating team member of the One Web of Life (OWL) program that is part of the South African Faith Communities' Environment Institute (SAFCEI), where he has served as a board member. The One Web of Life (OWL) Program adopted by SAFCEI in October 2014 is not content just to wait for such a world to be brought into being.  Compelled by the Golden Rule[2] to “treat all others as you’d like to be treated yourself”, OWL aims to encourage people of faith to think consciously about their relationship with all the creatures with whom we share the Earth. 



Prior to this he was at the University of Cape Town for 38 years, serving in many capacities including senior lecturer for the Department of Sociology, until his retirement in 2013.
