Mind Stretchers - Do Justice, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly - Christianity in the Public Square

March 26, 2019
6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Over the course of three talks, we will look at the different perspectives of Islam, Christianity, and Buddhism, on the challenges of confronting our divisions. We will also discuss the teaching and practice of these traditions that lead us to an understanding of the common good and the work of reconciliation. Christianity in the Public Square Drawing on both the social teachings of the different Christian traditions as well as secular ethics, Packwood and Champlin reflect on the contribution of Christian traditions to our understanding of the common good and the place of religious freedom, mutual respect, and dialogue in a pluralistic society. Dr. Josh Packwood is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at UAFS. He grew up in Ecuador as a missionary kid. He specializes in ancient Greek philosophy, while also being competent in the history of philosophy, ethics, world religions, comparative philosophy, and mysticism. Dr. Packwood is currently working on a book on global philosophy. Jeffrey Champlin is a retired Episcopal priest. He has served congregations in Connecticut, Kansas and Arkansas. He is an Instructor in Philosophy at UAFS.
