13th September 2014 - One Day Conference "Mission and Minds: Cultural Challenge" - London

Conference Picture
This world is God’s world, and mission is joining God in his caring for, sustaining and transforming His world, with the goal of re-establishing harmony between God and his creation, including humankind. It is a privilege and joy to be part of God's mission in the university setting. We are focusing on crossing the boundary between academia and the church - this is a really important issue.
Purpose: To explore how to see academic work as part of God crossing cultures on His mission and delighting in using academics like us in this work

C-A-N- is developing a collection of short pieces that give an individual's Christian perspective on current activity in an academic discipline or graduate profession or across professions / disciplines. We are looking for additional contributors (or reviewers) of such personal perspectives. We are also looking for additional ideas for topics on which such an overview would be useful - particularly multi-disciplinary or inter-professional issues.

1) If you know of any such perspectives which already exist then please send details to the perspectives editor so that we can reference them.

2) If there is no perspective for your discipline or profession then:
- please volunteer a personal Perspective on some issue to which you have brought biblical thinking and academic study or
- suggest someone who might be willing to write of short piece of this sort.

For more information, to make a comment or a suggestion, please send an email to our perspectives editor This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Below is a complete list all current perspectives.
