The Spirit of Social Hope: Spring Institute for Lived Theology

Posted on May 12, 2015 by PLT Staff

Essay collection from the Spring Institute for Lived Theology 2005 in Charlottesville, Virginia. Participants in the Institute share their personal backgrounds and their relationship to and understanding of the Spirit.

Excerpt: “We have discerned a hunger among many scholars and practitioners for the opportunity to reconnect the enterprise of theology with the lived experience of particular communities; and it has been our mission to provide a public space in which that task can be pursued through intense and diverse collaboration. Welcome to this venture.”
