When we speak with BTI Consortium students, we often hear that it’s hard to get to events and/or classes at other schools, especially without a car. I can relate to that since I have been (happily) car-less by choice for the past 6 years. That said, if you look at the newsletter a couple of times or read about the latest events as published on our website ( http://bostontheological.org/), I think you’ll be seriously tempted to visit another campus at least once or twice a semester.

In the past month, I attended the weekend Imago Dei in the Arts student conference held at Boston College School of Theology and Ministry, a fascinating midday presentation entitled Exploring the Changing Religious Landscape on emerging patterns of community and spirituality at HDS, and the evening launch of Words to Live By: Sacred Sources for Interrelligious Engagement at Hebrew College - all via the world-famous MBTA buses and trains. (Hah!) Other ways are to find a friend with a car, ask a few friends to share a Lyft or Uber, or even take the commuter rail. It is absolutely fascinating to experience an event at a different school to see what’s going on in this area so rich in religious and theological studies.
The BTI Consortium Spring 2019 catalogue is now up on our website. This semester we are trying a new way of organizing it – by school rather than by course area. Please let us know what you think.

And in the meantime, Happy Thanksgiving!

Events Around the BTI Consortium

Between 1925-1950,  Chinese  Christians competed visually for the hearts and minds of the  Chinese  nation. They produced hundreds of propaganda posters that hung alongside, and challenged, Nationalist and Communist visions of how to save the nation.

Supported by the Luce Foundation, the Center for Global Christianity and Mission has collaborated with fifteen institutions on three continents to digitize these, now, rare posters. This will be the first opportunity to showcase these amazing images to the public.

Torah Godly Play © is an accredited Torah-telling practice used in religious education throughout the world designed to enhance the spiritual lives of children. Teachers in Jewish Education settings are invited to participate to enhance their repertoire of teaching Torah. There will be an opportunity to practice the art of Torah Godly Play, experience newly written stories on Jewish holidays and Torah stories and to enroll in a community of practice designed to support practitioners of Torah Godly Play.
