Anglican Diocese supports engaged theology

A new gift of $75,000 from the Anglican Diocese of British Columbia will fund the John Albert Hall Lectures at the Centre for Studies in Religion and Society. The funds will support one or more high-profile public lectures annually for three years, featuring distinguished speakers who are recognized as public intellectuals on topics that exemplify "engaged theology". These lectures will provide opportunities for thoughtful consideration of major issues of our time, from an explicitly Christian perspective, with academic credibility, to challenge and expand the audience's thinking.
