Beginning with the experience of Christians living with mental health challenges, this lecture develops an interdisciplinary dialogue within which different dimensions of the healing process, including the fields of psychiatry and psychology, can come together faithfully as we explore the theology and practice of mental health care. Dr. John Swinton, Professor in Pratical Theology and Pastoral Care, The University of Aberdeen, Scotland,  contemplates the impact of faith on the lives of the caregivers and those cared for as well as how all might become faithful and hospitable people who can learn to live well even in the most difficult of circumstances.

Sponsored by STM and generously supported by the Pyne Endowment Trust in memory of Professor Margaret E. Pyne, a lifelong advocate for persons with disabilities.

In this presentation, Dr. Luke Timothy Johnson, Robert W. Woodruff Professor Emeritus of New Testament and Christian Origins, Emory University, uses Paul's letters to the Romans, Galatians, and Corinthians to examine the paradoxical nature of Christian slavery and freedom, and proposes the New Testament teaching as a measure for the discernment of some contemporary notions.
