THEOLOGY ON TAP: Hope! A Challenge for Today's World

Event Date: 
Saturday, August 18, 2012 - 6:30pm - 8:30pm

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto invite you to their home for a special Theology on Tap!

Topic: Hope! A Challenge for Today's World

Special guest: Dr. Ella Johnson, Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology at St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry in Rochester, NY.

This talk draws from the mystical writing of Julian of Norwich, placing her in conversation with contemporary Christian theologians such as John Paul II and Michael Himes, focusing on hope as one of the theological virtues. The talk promises to provide both inspiration and a challenge for meeting struggles with personal circumstances and also contemporary events in our world.

Dr. Ella Johnson earned her doctorate in Systematic Theology from the University of St.
Michael’s College, Faculty of Theology in 2010. Ella gains much joy working with students and teaching
classes in ecclesiology, sacraments, worship and spiritual classics. She is also continually inspired by the
writings of medieval women mystics, on which she enjoys researching and publishing. When she is not
researching and teaching this summer, she likes to be with her husband, Jerry, in their garden.

Join us for an evening of thought-provoking conversation on theological topics! Munchies provided - come and bring a friend!
