The 2018 Marcus Borg Memorial Conference - ‘Days of Awe and Wonder: How we see makes all the difference’

In this conference, Marianne will take extracts from the posthumous collection of Marcus’s work entitled ‘Days of Awe and Wonder’ and will seek to explore with us what it means to be Christian today. What is the Christian story and how do we ‘see’ the world through the lens of Christian faith? Can our days indeed be filled with awe and wonder? Is how we see and pay attention what makes the difference?

The Marcus J. Borg Foundation is now committed to exploring a realistic and meaningful articulation of Christianity for the 21st Century building upon the historical and theological research and teachings of Marcus. PCN Britain is also committed to building on the legacy of Marcus’s work and in this third year of our annual memorial conferences we are delighted to welcome Marianne Borg, Marcus’ widow, to lead our conference at St Mark’s Sheffield, where for many in the UK, Marcus was heard for the first time.

 

Marianne Borg is a priest in the Episcopal Church of the USA. She served at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, Oregon, for eighteen years and was founding director of The Center for Spiritual Development which hosted lecture weekends with leading voices in Christianity and interfaith dialogue, led pilgrimages, and provided multi-year spiritual formation classes. It was Marianne who founded the Marcus J. Borg Foundation in late 2105. www.marcusjborg.org.

This day offers the opportunity to share our stories and to continue the work of the Marcus Borg Foundation in exploring a realistic and meaningful articulation of Christianity for the 21st Century 

Please note the date now. Booking information and other details will be available in June.
