SEMINARY OF THE 3RD AGE – MARCH – PAUL GOH
The Sem 3A theme for 2022 is Faith and Religion relating to the present age. In the March series of seminars, we examine The Relationship between Religion and Culture. Paul Goh will present tonight on the topic Christianity in a global and post-Christian world.
Christianity is dying out? This past Sunday it is possible that more Christians attended church in China than in all of so-called “Christian Europe.” Christianity is no longer an exclusive or even primarily Western phenomenon. The centre of Christianity has shifted from Europe to the global South. While Christianity recedes in its old heartlands, it thrives apace in Africa, Asia and Pacific Islands. How has South Australian Christian Community become a microcosm of World Christianity? Who are rising “Nones” and “the spiritual but not religious”? Shall Pentecostals and the Fundamentalist win? Is There a Future for Progressive Christianity?
