There is a massive gap between the church and academy. We want to get back to that time when the church and academy in their mission, in their vision had much more overlap.
“What might happen if we brought a little bit of the TED model to church?”
Meet Ryan Bonfiglio. This was the question that he and a group of lay leaders at First Presbyterian Church of Atlanta were wrestling with back in 2016. Their answer to that question—TheoEd Talks. TheoEd Talks is an ecumenical speaker series that seeks to bring together leading thinkers in the church and the academy to give the talk of their lives in 20 minutes or less. These talks are designed to inspire conversation that will change the way you think about God, religion and the power of faith to shape lives and communities.
