Registration is now open for the 2014 Convocation & Pastors’ School | Life after Christendom: Resident Aliens 25 Years Later

Twenty-five years ago, Stanley Hauerwas and Will Willimon challenged the Christian church to live as a vital embodiment of the Gospel, operating within today’s society but apart from its eroding values. The vision laid out in their book Resident Aliens still resonates with Christians today as we seek to be a faithful witness to the world.

Join Hauerwas and Willimon as they join with sociologist James Davison Hunter, Bishops Hope Morgan Ward, and Larry Goodpaster, and pastors throughout the country to examine the impact of this book on clergy, congregations, and seminaries.

The annual Convocation & Pastors’ School is an intensive two-day conference that offers lectures, worship, and seminars for Christian leaders of all traditions. Led by scholars and practitioners from Duke and beyond, this event is a cooperative endeavor with the North Carolina and Western North Carolina Conferences of the United Methodist Church and The Duke Endowment. The convocation also includes alumni gatherings. Pastors and laity of churches eligible for grants from The Duke Endowment may attend at a reduced rate.
