We have a lot of news to share – including a new trailer! – as plans have come together for Karam Forum 2019. Our early bird price of $50 is only available for a limited time, so register today to join us for this catalytic event!
Karam Forum will be taking place Jan. 3-4, 2019 in Dallas. We’ll think together about how the deep patterns of scripture can inform and transform how our people live their daily lives in their homes, workplaces and communities. Miroslav Volf, David Miller and Mark Greene will consider how the changing world we live in affects the church and its mission in daily life, and the critical role of Christiain higher education in meeting those challenges. Fred Sanders, Patrick Smith, Michael Wittmer and more will lead discussion of how core doctrines of the faith connect to vocation and public life.
You know it, we know it: One of the toughest places to think together is at the intersection of theology and economic issues. We’ve put together an amazing panel at Karam Forum 2019 to push the envelope on connecting our knowledge of God to the way we structure and participate in our economic systems. Each panelist will begin with a concept of acknowledged theological importance – hospitality, fellowship, creativity, justice – and consider 1) how that concept should impact the general structure of economic systems, 2) how it should form the particular way Christians participate in economic life, and 3) what limitations or cautions we need to keep in mind, in light of our finite capacities and fallenness.
For this challenging interdisciplinary conversation we have assembled a uniquely interdisciplinary panel. The panel includes one full-time theological educator, one full-time economics professor, two pastors who are also part-time theological educators, and a pastor who has a Ph.D. in economics:
- Kevin Dudley, The Church at North Pointe, Ashland Theological Seminary and Trinity International University
- Isaac Frere, The Font
- P.J. Hill, Wheaton College
- Lawrence Ward, Abundant Life Church and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
- Brent Waters, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
With all due respect to a certain recent comic-book movie, this may well be the greatest crossover event in history.
We are also announcing a new venue – the historic Warwick Melrose Hotel in Dallas. Built in 1924 and lovingly preserved, the Warwick Melrose is known in the area as a beautiful space for events. We’re looking forward to enjoying their hospitality.
