“Apocalyptic Fear & Christian Hope”

As white supremacism, toxic masculinity, nuclear threat, and ecological denialism rise, so does doubt about our shared future. The biblical apocalypse gains a new secular relevance. But fear can paralyze, and hope can turn to hype. How shall Christian theology nurture a hope beyond illusions of progress or escape—and activate the love and the faith that turns catastrophe into catalyst, that motivates local vibrancy and planetary solidarity?

The lecture is open to the general public and free of charge.
