The goal of this dialogue is to create for campus and collegiate ministries and the church a resource that addresses theological concerns on college and university campuses and in the lives of college and university students.
The paper proposal entitled “Breaking Bread, Building Relationships: Living the Sacrament to Create the Beloved Community” the intersection of our United Methodist theological understanding of hospitality as expressed in sacramental living (blessed, broken, shared, sent) serving the specific needs of displaced students to experience, engage and grow in faith and spiritual well being.
The conference will include 12-15 participants with intentional efforts to secure participation from the global United Methodist connection. We will spend the mornings of each day in conversation around each other’s work, with the afternoons reserved for your own scholarly research at one of university’s libraries or in a space of your own choosing.
The goal is to produce a book of scholarly work written by collegiate ministry practitioners and those working on a college or university campus for the benefit of those seeking to better understand, from a theological perspective, the global work of collegiate ministry in the UMC.
