Visit Thanks to a technological partnership with Trinity Insti- tute in New York City, St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Second and Market streets in Lewes, will present Trinity Institute's 42nd National Theological Confer- ence, Radical Christian Life: Equipping Ourselves for Social Change, with loan Chittister, OSB, via webcast at 6:30 p.m., Friday, Dec. 7 and at 1 p.m., Sat- urday, Dec. 8. At U a.m., Sunday, Dec. 9, Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM, will preach at Trinity Church. This, too, will be webcast to St. Peter's. In the 21st century, people seek to cope in a world that is shifting on its very foundations. Econom- ic inequity threatens to tear soci- ety apart at the seams. According to Chittister, "Our task is now to be radical Christ- Jan communities in the here and now, not fossils of a bygone reali- ty, not leftovers from an earlier golden age. Now we need new wisdom and a new kind of strug- gle to determine what we must be and do in the midst of these changing times. The question is then: What does it mean to be a radical Christian community in times such as these? Chittister will offer tools for making the vital connection be- tween contemplation and social action. Participants will explore such questions as: How can Christian traditions of social justice and contempla- tion energize communities as forces for positive change in the world? i What practices help to dis- cern where to engage?. Where are the sources of cre- ativity and resilience within one's faith tradition? How can one work in part- nership with those of other faiths and no faith?
