BCM Thought Matters Seminar – Promo – Friendship in Three Dimensions

A Thought Matters PUBLIC SEMINAR
Friendship in Three Dimensions
7.30pm, Thursday 25th August 2016
Booth College of Mission Chapel

Tēnā koutou katoa

William Booth once said: “One of the secrets of the success of the Salvation Army is that the friendless of the world find friends in it.”

Is this idea of friendship just a warm and fuzzy thing that makes the Army a great place to be or are there deeper theological concepts and spiritual realities which friendship embodies? In this paper, Caroline Jewkes will present a model of friendship which offers some different ways of thinking about salvation and mission for The Salvation Army in 21st century Aotearoa New Zealand.

Caroline Jewkes is part of the BCM team, currently living and working in Hamilton and a soldier at Hamilton City Corps. She has recently completed a Master of Theology degree through Laidlaw College and will be sharing some of the material from her thesis. Caroline is one of the NZFT representatives on the Tri-Territorial Theological forum and will be presenting a paper called Salvation is friendship at the TTTF conference in Melbourne in October 2016.

We look forward to seeing you.
