Keynote Speaker: Anthony Gittins, CSSp
If mission is crossing boundaries then we need to take account of the turn to the intercultural in thinking about mission. We are privileged to have with us Anthony Gittins, author of a book of the same title as our conference (Liturgical Press, 2015). He is insistent we move from mono-cultural approaches to mission through the multicultural to the intercultural – especially when forming and re-forming Christian community around God’s mission today. Anthony is the Emeritus Professor of Theology and Culture at the Catholic Theological Union, Chicago, USA.
Our respondent for the day is Sharon Prentis who is the Intercultural Mission Enabler for the Anglican Diocese of Birmingham, UK.
