Special Lecture with Professor Albert J. Raboteau

Central invites you to join us this Thursday, September 29th, at 7:30pm for a special lecture with Professor Albert J. Raboteau. In light of the recent spate of violence across the world and continuing racial tension here in the US, Professor Raboteau will give a lecture on Christian resources for forgiveness and racial reconciliation entitled "American Prophets: Religious Radicals and Their Struggle for Social and Political Justice.” This talk will be followed by a moderated Q&A with Professor Eric Gregory.



Professor Raboteau has taught at Yale, Berkeley, and Harvard, and currently is the Henry W. Putnam Professor Emeritus of Religion at Princeton University. His written work includes Slave Religion: The 'Invisible Institution' in the Antebellum South and A Sorrowful Joy: a Spiritual Memoir. With Richard Alba and Josh DeWeind he co-edited Religion and Immigration in America: Comparative and Historical Perspectives.


Spread the word and join us for what will be a powerful and deeply important evening of discussion.

Vocare: Seminars on the Gospel, Culture, and Vocation

Central’s Vocare explores the intersection of the gospel, culture, and vocation.  The Latin word "vocare" (pronounced vo-KAR-ay) means "to call" and is the root of the English word "vocation."  The purpose of these seminars is to equip us theologically and spiritually to live out our unique and distinctive callings as people who have been sent by God into the world.
Our Fall Vocare series continues this Sunday, October 2nd at 10am with the first in a two-part series, "Jeremiah: Calling, Confusion, and Comfort" by Mike Kelly, Adjunct Professor at Biblical Theological Seminary.
