Mission Among the Ruins: Touchstones for Ministry in a World That Has Lost Its Story
A DOXOLOGY Seminar
October 9, 2019 — Elm Grove Lutheran Church, Elm Grove, WI
Dr. Anthony Esolen
Professor at Northeast Catholic College, Warner, New Hampshire
Dr. Anthony Esolen is a respected humanities scholar and cultural analyst. His many writings include not only scholarly works on literature, but practical wisdom on family life and child raising. He is widely known as a provocative and engaging speaker. His goal is to apply the classic Christian worldview to a decaying social structure and discuss what it means for Christians to live confidently amid our current moral and spiritual chaos.
The seminar will feature three separate presentations by Dr. Esolen, including:
Lecture One “Surveying the Rubble: A Hard Look at Cultural Decay” The first step in healing is accurate diagnosis. In this session we learn the extent of our collective cultural illness so that we can better seek remedy.
Lecture Two “The View from the Basement: Living in a Subhuman Society” Vibrant, hopeful mission begins with compassion. In this session we begin to grasp the price people pay in order to create meaning in a world that has lost touch with virtue.
Lecture Three “Recapturing the Vision: Building an Inhabitable World” Rather than grieving their past, the challenge before each succeeding generation of Christians is to embrace the unique opportunities of the future. In this session we identify the building blocks for constructing outposts of order in a chaotic world.
