BEING OPEN TO GOD’S FREEDOM – WESLEYAN ROOTS AND CONTEMPORARY RELEVANCE

Posted by David McEwan | Uncategorized | Monday 11 July 2011 10:13 am

We are still receiving registrations and paper proposals for the 2011 Conference of the Australasian Centre for Wesleyan Research 5-6 August. The major theme of this year’s conference is the subject of “Open Theology” (“Open Theism”, “Free Will Theism”). This is a subject that is dear to the heart of many Wesleyans, though not all are happy with some of the directions taken and their implications for life and ministry. The conference will offer a forum for scholars from a broad range of disciplines to share their research on a wide range of issues to do with the nature, relevance and implications of open theism for the church.\r\n\r\nWhile Open Theism is the major topic for this year’s conference, we would also welcome scholars presenting their work from other areas of Wesleyan research.\r\n\r\nWe are pleased to announce that our 2011 conference will be held on the campus of Nazarene Theological College in Brisbane, August 5-6.\r\n\r\nWe are able to provide meals during the conference sessions. A good range of hotels/motels may be found close to the college.\r\n\r\nThe college is located at Thornlands, a suburb of the bayside city of Redland. It is about 25kms from the Brisbane CBD, with a regular bus and train service from the city. The college is easily accessed by car or train from the airport, and from the major freeways that serve Brisbane.\r\n\r\nYou may register for the conference  at our website:  http://acwr.edu.au/events/conference-registration
