The Third Workshop in the Caregiving Series

Jan. 26, 2013 | 8:30 a.m.- Noon | $25

The aging population is the fastest growing segment of United States population. Ministry with older adults can be a rich and rewarding experience for both the provider and the recipient of pastoral care. Informed pastoral care providers are in a better position to faciliate conversations that offer opportunities for mutual blessing and intimate connection. Join us for a skill-enriching program.

Currie Lectures

“Grace-filled Economy: The Way Around the Ethic of Scarcity Toward the Ethic of Enough”

Elizabeth Hinson-Hasty

The unequal distribution of wealth, patterns of consumption, and ecological devastation have received a great deal of attention in recent years. All too often we approach these overwhelming problems from an ethic of scarcity, the idea that we need to protect our own interests and resources out of fear that there will be some point that we do not have enough.

Three lectures will develop a technologically rich and biblically informed vision for grace-filled economy, one based upon shared partnership and characterized by sharing, satisfaction with enough, mutuality, reciprocity, love, and justice.


Karl Travis

Travis, pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Fort Worth, will lead us in worship on Monday and Tuesday evenings.

“The Last Shall be First: Ecclesiology as Initial Theological Problem”

Joseph Small

Ecclesiology—the doctrine of the church—is a theological afterthought, too often reduced to improbable ideal or embarrassing sociology. The absence of a fully theological awareness of the church leads to its institutional marketing as a purveyor of religious goods and services. Who, what, when, where, why, and how in the world is the “one holy catholic apostolic church”? Two lectures will point toward congregational, denominational, and ecumenical answers.


Discovery Weekend

Feb. 15-17, 2013

If you or someone you know is considering the call to ministry, Discovery Weekend at Austin Seminary could be the next step. You will spend time with other prospective seminarians who can identify with your questions and concerns, and you will converse with Seminary faculty, staff, and students who can address those concerns. It is an invaluable opportunity to discern how and where God is calling you now. Get an up-close and personal view of theological education. We invite you to discover the possibilities.
