Trinity Institute Webcasts

Trtinity Institute's 36th National Conference, entitled The Anatomy of Reconciliation; From Violence to Healing, concluded today. Webcasts of the keynote speakers and some of the panel discussions are now available. Here's some info on the speakers:

Author-theologian James Alison advocates a vision of non-violence based on an understanding of a theology of resurrection and the transformation of human desire. Yale Divinity School’s Miroslav Volf, a native of Croatia, works in a theological context shaped largely from his experience of Serbian-Croatian violence and the struggle toward peace. Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ, the author of Dead Man Walking, is a passionate advocate for restorative, rather than retributive, justice. After working in the thick of the struggle for civil rights, Gwendolyn Zoharah Simmons is now an american Muslim and a professor of religion who specializes in gender issues. Bishop Michael B. Curry, a powerful preacher whose leadership on a number of important fronts has combined the best of the prophetic and the pastoral will set the tone at the opening liturgy of reconciliation.

Trinity also has a virtual treasure trove of videos archived here.
