Trinity Consultation on Post-Christendom Spiritualities
The Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization Issue Group 16, The Church and New Spiritualities, together with Trinity International University and the Western Institute for Intercultural Studies, announces an international conference on Christianity and new religious movements hosted by the School of Biblical and Religious studies at Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois, U.S.A. on 16-19 October 2008.
The conference is a gathering of practitioners and scholars addressing the decline of Christianity in the West and the concomitant growth of new people groups expressed in religions and spiritualities such as modern Paganism, New Age, Western Esotericism and other alternative spiritualities. Ten plenary sessions and twelve parallel workshops will address the topics of the future of religion in the West, the makeup of the alternative religious marketplace and approaches in engaging adherents of alternative spiritualities.
