Instructor: The Rev. Dr. Laurence DeWolfe

Location: AST Campus

About the Workshop
“It feels like we’ve been asleep for a generation. While we were sleeping the whole world outside the church changed. Now we’re awake, and we don’t know where we are.” More than one layperson has confessed this sense of disorientation. Many clergy have, too. The world that was once familiar, even comfortable for church folk is now a world of others and of otherness. While God has always called the church outward and toward others, Canadian Christians have long assumed their mission was to call others inward, that all might become one and the same in belief and behaviour. Now neighbours who believe differently, or profess no set of beliefs, perceive Christians as others. Two generations of the church’s children have grown up, fully awake and experiencing the world in a way their parents and grandparents struggle to accept. The children see the worldview of their parents reflected in the church. “We’re awake, and we don’t know where we are.”

About ASTIAA Workshops

ASTIAA members told us they were interested in continuing education programming that included opportunities to socialize, and we listened! Part learning, and part networking, ASTIAA workshops were developed with those things in mind. Rather than holding all of these events on campus, we have been travelling to various locations in an effort to make it possible for more alumni to attend. These workshops are also open to non-ASTIAA members. You'll find a list below of past ASTIAA workshops, and we welcome your feedback and ideas for new workshops at any time. Do drop us an email if you have some good ideas for future offerings!
