Dignity, Equity and Justice Committee
Canadian Theological Society
Invitation for New Committee Members
Christianity in Canada is a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural and multi-lingual reality. Theological teaching and research in the Canadian context should ideally celebrate the dignity of multiple different ways of living, experiencing and embodying Christian faith, as well as different theological epistemologies. The Dignity, Equity and Justice Committee of the Canadian Theological Society is seeking CTS members–particularly those from historically marginalized and minoritized communities–who want to re-envision theological work in Canada to reflect the full reality of Canadian Christianity. The committee will assist and advise the CTS membership and its executive to open new, safer spaces for diverse theological voices, and to identify critical tools in the Society for strengthening our practices of scholarly enquiry, programming, publication, networking and professional formation. A more specific mandate and desired outcomes will be articulated through a process of collaboration and shared discernment in our first year. We anticipate that membership in the committee will entail a commitment of at least 2 virtual or in-person meetings a year, though this too will be subject to the discernment of committee members.
If you are interested in joining or have any questions, please contact the committee’s interim secretary, Reid B. Locklin (firstname.lastname@example.org), preferably no later than 15 November 2020.
