The Department of Fundamental & Dogmatic Theology will be hosting a Theology Research Seminar entitled 'Discovering Christian Memory and Identity'.
Speaker: Dr Cynthia Grech Sammut
Venue: Theology Board Room (317)
Date: Wednesday 18 April
Time: 16:00 - 17:00
Chair: Rev. Dr John Berry
The current trends against previously established moral and Christian values are shaking and shaping a Christian identity formerly held to be unquestionably true. The study of Jesus’ meeting with the Samaritan woman (Jn 4:1-42) provides a context whereby Samaritan and Jew meet at the well of their common ancestor. In the presence of Jesus Christ, this encounter is transformed into one which gives everlasting life. Past experiences and contrasting religious practices are reconciled during the dialogue with Christ. Through the study of this text we will discover aspects in this encounter which can shed light on what remains relevant in the formation of the identity of the Christian disciple in relation to his past.
The general public is cordially invited to attend this public lecture.
