Re-Imagining Christian Education Through the Voices of Children
Virginia Lee (Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary)
Reginald Blount (Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary)

Colloquium. [Notes] Christian education needs to be profoundly transformed. In this colloquy, we will help participants radically change their understanding of Christian education rooted in actual practices of child advocacy.


The Saving Power of Education: How Our Soteriology Might Help Us Reimagine the Tasks of Education
Hannah Adams Ingram (Iliff School of Theology)

Colloquium. [Notes] My project suggests that US discourse about education posits a salvific function, specifically the ability to “save” marginalized groups from poverty by lifting them into middle-class success. I will share excerpts from my discourse analysis of public statements in which I investigated how uplift language was deployed. The current discourse around education supports a view of salvation as personal and individual, disconnected from community justice, and the move liberation theology took in asserting that salvation concerned more than the individual could transform the way we view education.
