With Ellen Charry
Regent College is pleased to host the 2013-14 Laing Lectures featuring Dr. Ellen T. Charry, the Margaret W. Harmon Professor of Systematic Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary. Charry will deliver a series of three lectures on the topic “Christian Theology as a Guide for the Emotions” on February 19 and 20, 2014 at Regent College.
For Dr. Charry, theology is not a theoretical enterprise. It is an eminently practical and religious undertaking. "Theology is about knowing and growing in the love of God and our neighbor so that we flourish in the destiny that God has in mind for us," she once wrote. A quick examination of her writing confirms her passion for human flourishing. Whether in the classroom at Princeton or the pages of her publications, such as By the Renewing of your Minds (1997) and God and the Art of Happiness (2010), she pursues answers to the question of how Christian beliefs and practices can nurture people intellectually, morally, and psychologically in the course of everyday life and work. She will continue to pursue this question at the Laing Lectures as she explores the interface between Christian doctrine and emotional formation.
