Application Live: 2011 Duke Summer Reconciliation Institute
I love how this video captures the absolutely unique ethos of the Duke Summer Reconciliation Institute.
The 2011 dates are June 6-11, 2011, the application is now live on-line. Space is limited so apply early. Some scholarships are available.
Last year participants came from 27 states, 8 countries, and 15+ denominations – mainline, evangelical, and Catholic. This is not a conference for the many but is limited to 150 Christian leaders, a place to go deep, to a fresh place spiritually, vocationally, organizationally.
2011 faculty include Richard Hays, Soong-Chan Rah, Mary Nelson, Edgardo Colon-Emeric, Efrem Smith, Curtiss DeYoung, John Perkins, Emmanuel Katongole, Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, Chris Heuertz, Paulus Widjaja, and others.
In-depth seminar cohorts include Christianity and Islam, Transforming Academic Institutions for Reconciliation, a cohort focused on Durham, Immigration and Reconciliation, Reconciliation in Prisons, Congregations, Grassroots Communities, Global Poverty, and others.
Especially encouraged to apply – cohorts from cities, organizations, churches. Last year we had 12 from a Houston church, 15 senior leaders from InterVarsity, 8 from the Evangelical Covenant Church, 7 from Eastern Nazarene University, 8 from east Africa, and 14 colleges, universities, and seminaries represented.
See the summer institute web site for full information.
2010 highlights included one significant organization’s breakthrough; deep conversations on immigration and the BP oil spill leading to a Durham Declaration on Immigration and The BP Oil Spill: A Call for Lament and Reconciliation.
