"Hospitality Critical Thinking and Truth: Living the Tensions" has been co-planned by four institutions: Abilene Christian University, Gordon College, Messiah College, and Point Loma Nazarene University. Our goal has been to design a meeting where faculty, staff, and administrators from Christian colleges and universities can talk together about our shared goal of nurturing students into practices of gracious faith and intelligent reflection that fit the needs of the 21st century.
The key questions we will be asking include: How can we be faithful to a Christian vision of reality and also hospitable to other perspectives that may be at odds with our own? How can we embrace allegiance to truth while critically examining all truth-claims, our own as well as others? These are unavoidable tensions that face all Christian Scholars and all Christian instructions of higher learning, and these are the tensions that will stand at the heart of this conference. Come explore these tensions with colleagues form Christian colleges and universities from around the country.
