Denominational Executives Gather For Summit On Theology And Social Action

Two Disciples leaders are among those gathering at the Claremont School of Theology to discuss how theology helps churches with social action, and how social justice changes theology. General Minister and President Sharon E. Watkins and General Secretary of the National Council of Churches Michael Kinnamon are among those attending the Claremont Denominational Summit May 27-29. The summit includes a public forum on May 28 on the topic "Contemporary Theology for Social Action in the Churches," where both Watkins and Kinnamon will participate.

"In light of the new political landscape in America, church leaders must talk about how theology impacts social justice, and vice versa," said Marjorie Hewitt Suchocki, program co-director and professor emeriti at Claremont School of Theology.
