Western Theological Seminary will host this year’s Summer Institute on Theology and Disability. According to the Collaborative on Faith and Disability’s website,
“The Summer Institute on Theology and Disability brings together academics, theologians, practitioners and others—people with and without labeled disabilities—to explore the inclusive intersections of theology and disabilities. The Summer Institute is led by Bill Gaventa and core faculty including Hans Reinders, John Swinton, Tom Reynolds, Amos Yong, Erik Carter, Darla Schumm and Julia Watts Belser. Founded in 2010, the Summer Institute creates a significant space for thought-and-practice leadership in the rapidly growing arena of theology and disability.”
Benjamin’s Hope will be the site of a dinner and tour for institute participants on Wednesday evening.
