A Conceptual Analysis of Imagination in the Context of Faith
Deborah Court (Bar-Ilan University, Israel)

Colloquium. [Notes] What is imagination? What is its role and what are its boundaries in the context of both faith, which requires a suspension of the need for proof, and religious knowledge and practice, which is structured by a set of texts, rules and rituals? What can we learn from the intersections of imagination, faith and religious structures? This colloquy will present a beginning conceptual analysis of imagination and attempt to locate its meaning and possibilities in relation to religious faith, religious knowledge and practice and religious education.


Religious Attitude and Commitment of 1.5 and 2nd Generation Asian-Canadian Protestant Young Adults

Nam Soon Song (Knox College, University of Toronto)

Colloquium. [Notes] This paper presents research entitled, "Religious Attitudes and Commitment of 1.5 and 2nd Generation Asian-Canadian Protestant Young Adults." It surveyed 300 Asian Canadian University students, ages 18 to 25, who identify as Protestant to better understand their religious attitudes and commitment to their churches. The findings so far have been eye opening. Of the 300 students, 216 participants currently attend church. In their written responses, the students used the words “being connected,” “diversity,” “openness,” and “inclusiveness” to describe what they wanted in their church lives.
