World Mission Initiative of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary is dedicated to developing mission vision, nurturing missionary vocations, and cultivating missional congregations by equipping mission leaders to engage faithfully and effectively in God’s intercultural mission. WMI offers opportunities and resources to serve congregations and students. WMI is part of the PTS Neighborhood Collaborative.
For decades, mission workers, pastors, and theologians have talked about the holistic dimensions of the gospel. We largely assume that the Good News has economic, social, and political dimensions. In practical terms, this means that our witness to the gospel must address racial and economic inequalities, racial ideologies, and economic exploitation. But how?
Drawing upon his work in the award-winning book Asian Americans and the Spirit of Racial Capitalism, Dr. Jonathan Tran will explore our McClure lecture theme “The Spirit of Capitalism and the Witness of the Church” and the entanglements between race and economics, in order to offer theological and practical resources for the renewal of Christian community in this time and place.
4:30 p.m. ET - W. Don McClure Lecture followed by dinner
7:30 p.m. ET - A conversation between Jonathan Tran and City of Asylum artist in residence/Vietnamese activist Mai Khôi
