Christians Have Lost the War for Christmas: With the holidays approaching and in light of comments delivered at the Values Voter Summit last Friday, we found the thoughts from 2014 of Phillips Seminary President Gary Peluso-Verdend on the annual festival of the Christmas wars worth another visit.
Memorial Service for Dennis Smith: The Phillips Theological Seminary community will gather Friday, Oct. 20 at 4 p.m. to remember our departed colleague, professor, and friend Dennis E. Smith, Professor of New Testament Emeritus.
Devices, Envy, and Enough: "As I observe my own behavior, as I see how my 11-year-old is absorbed in any screen to which she has access, and as I feel (along with many of my friends and acquaintances) a deep disquiet and discomfort over societies and nations that seem badly out-of-alignment with livable values, I wonder how our devices are contributing to the misalignment," writes President Gary Peluso-Verdend in his weekly blog.
On the Passing of Jo Ann Gilpin: We're saddened at the passing of Jo Ann Gilpin, a former Phillips Theological Seminary staff member and dedicated leader in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
Phillips Presents Free Public Lectures on the Intersection of Culture and Religion: Phillips Theological Seminary presents three public lectures by nationally respected Oklahoma-based scholars on how culture and religion intersect and affect each other. Each lecture includes time for questions and answers. The lectures are free and open to the public on the Phillips campus.
Before It Is Too Late: President Gary Peluso-Verdend writes this week on how sticky and resilient our biases are, focusing on what happens when humankind emphasizes history to exclusion of creation.
Who Isn’t Preaching Just to the Choir?: In his weekly blog post, President Gary Peluso-Verdend fears that we religious folks have done more to fuel our host society’s under-developed capacity to persuade and be persuaded than we have to engage and understand anyone who thinks, values, and behaves differently from “us.”
The Church of America First: President Gary Peluso-Verdend imagines a nation built upon an extreme version of "America first" in his weekly blog.
