Open Door Discussion: Dr. Joerg Rieger
Our Open Door series welcomes Dr. Joerg Rieger for a two-part series focused on Liberation Theology on Sunday, September 13th & Sunday, September 20th.
Dr. Rieger is Wendland-Cook Professor of Constructive Theology at Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University.
For more than two decades Rieger has worked to bring together theology and the struggles for justice and liberation that mark our age.
His work addresses the relation of theology to public life, using tools from cultural studies, critical theory, and religious studies, and reflecting on the misuse of power in religion, politics, and economics. His main interest is in movements and developments that bring about change and the positive contributions of religion.
Join the conversation Sunday, September 13th and Sunday, September 20th at 9:40 a.m. in Fellowship Hall.
