Imagining a Way to Repair and Reshape the Unresolved Battle Over Revelation in American Protestantism
Barbara Senecal-Davis (Fordham University)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] The unresolved battle over revelation in American Protestantism crystalizes in the debate between Harrison Elliott and James Smart in the 1940‘s and 1950‘s. This paper engages the arguments of Elliott's Can Religious Education Be Christian? and Smart’s The Teaching Ministry of the Church concerning their views on scripture and revelation. Their ideas are brought into conversation primarily with Gabriel Moran, who imagines an alternative understanding of revelation. This understanding creates opportunities for reshaping this conflict through the creative tensions and connectivity of teaching-learning.

For All the Saints: The Cult of Saints and Theological Imagination in the Art of Liberal Protestant Youth Ministry
Jason Okrzynski (First Congregational Church of Wilmette)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] In the construction of selfhood, emerging adults draw on external voices to develop their internal voice and extend their lives into the world. In order then to educate for redemptive selves, young people require concrete and reliable resources that can prophetically stir theological imagination in the development of redemptive selves. In this paper I propose the lives of the saints as a resource for drawing out theological imagination in Liberal Protestant youth ministry.
