Alternating Currents: Sacramental and Prophetic Imagining and Church Education
Kieran Scott (Fordham University)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] This paper advocates that education ought to be movement toward a unity of conflicting forces in the life of the congregation/parish. This paradox is captured best in the two divergent forms of imagination, namely, the sacramental and prophetic, both of which are grounded and united in their commitment to seeing ultimate reality. Church education in and for sacramental and prophetic practices offers the possibility of revitalizing church life from within and, in turn, offers an outward response to repair our social and public world.

Participating in God’s Imagination: Classical Pragmatism, Trinitarian Theology, and Religious Education
John Falcone (Boston College)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] Trinitarian theology in the mold of Classical Pragmatism and Peircean semiotics can provide a theological grounding for the imaginative pedagogy that Maria Harris championed. Classical Pragmatist theologians speak the language of modern North Americans; they describe Trinitarian theology in terms of experience, and they link imagination with the work of God’s Holy Spirit. A pedagogy rooted in this theology draws attention to classroom values of healthy development, spontaneity, structured play, and rigorous reflection.
