Faith Seeking Understanding: A Beginner's Guide to Theology

Sharon Prentis

What is theology? One classic definition is St Augustine’s that it is simply “faith seeking understanding”.

Saturday 18 November 2017 2 - 4.30pm
Wren Suite £15 (bursaries are available)

The Revd Dr Sharon Prentis is the Beginning Theology Course Coordinator at St Mellitus College, London. She has degrees in Social Sciences, Anthropology and Theology, is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, a member of the National Committee for Minority Ethnic Anglican Concerns, as well as serving in a parish in East London.

It’s easy to think of theology belonging in universities, but Sharon Prentis suggests that we are all theologians. Theology is about exploring the mystery of God in ways that nourish and deepen our lives of faith, and thinking theologically begins with a dynamic engagement with the living God, starting from whoever and wherever we are in our everyday lives. In this workshop, she will introduce us to ways of thinking theologically that will turn us towards God with enthusiasm and love.
