The Future of Process Theology

July 24 - July 26

Free

Sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Fairbanks, Alaska
and the Center for Process Studies

Over the past 90 years since Alfred North Whitehead’s seminal publication, Process and Reality, his relational, open, organic worldview has taken shape in a myriad of unique ways.  It has been said that Process Theology is one of the most important movements in 21st Century American liberal theology, in connection with liberation theology, feminist theology, eco-theology, religious pluralism, religion and science, panpsychism, panentheism, postmodern, and the list goes on. But process theology is not strictly a Christian or Western phenomena. There are religious followers from around the globe who find aspects of process thought illuminating for their own respective traditions. Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, and other thinkers have infused their religiosity with process relational thinking in extremely fruitful ways. But where do we go from here? What will the future of process theology look like?

This conference seeks to explore these issues and more. It will address the fundamentals of process thought and explore the most promising directions for its future and potential impact in areas of theology, religious discourse, and beyond.
