Fall Theology Lab: Asian American Theology

Aug 20, 2021

What is Asian American theology? How can our church communities learn a more holistic way of discipleship through the testimonies and faith expressions of Asian American Christians? Following last year's examination of Black Theology, this fall, Theology Lab’s online discussion group will study and reflect upon the work of Asian American theologians. Organizers include Dr. David Chao of the Center for Asian American Christianity at Princeton Seminary, Pastor Kat Hampson of Highrock Brookline, and Scott Rice, Resident Theologian of Highrock Online.

The first session will feature David Chao who will speak about the developing field of Asian American Theology and answer the basic questions - What is it? and Where is it going? Next, Professor Russell Jeung of San Francisco State University and author of At Home in Exile will lead the group in a discussion about justice, family, and a theology of exile. In the final fall session, Pastor Kat and Dr. Chao will share some perspectives on what’s at stake — personally, culturally, and politically — in engaging Asian American theology. 

This fall's Asian American Theology Lab will meet from 8:00-9:30pm ET on Zoom on the Sunday evenings of October 3rd, October 24th, and November 14th.

As always, in keeping with Theology Lab's motto, no background in theology is needed. Just curiosity. All are welcome to join the discussion and learn something new together.
