There is still time to register for this Zoom Continuing Education event sponsored by the Susquehanna Valley Ministry Center on November 11, 2020 -- "Science Fiction & Theology: Connections with Culture" led by Steven Schweitzer.  

Steven Schweitzer (PhD, Notre Dame) is Academic Dean and Professor at Bethany Theological Seminary. He regularly teaches a graduate seminar on Chronicles-Ezra-Nehemiah and a course on Science Fiction and Theology. Steve has preached, taught, and led workshops for several congregations and districts. Steve and his wife, Jill, have 3 children. They attend Cedar Grove Church of the Brethren in the Southern Ohio/Kentucky District. 

Science Fiction is extremely popular in our wider culture. This genre is filled with theological themes: who is God, what does it mean to be human, what is the nature of evil, how is it overcome, is war or violence necessary, to name only a few. Based on a course Steve teaches at Bethany Seminary, examples from widely popular SciFi series -- Star Wars, Star Trek, and Doctor Who - that allow connections between theology and culture -- will be explored.  

Zoom link will be emailed to all registered participants a day or so before the event. One fee of $40 includes .55 CEUs. Please click on "Register Now" link below to register. Currently, only personal checks can be accepted. 


Susquehanna Valley Ministry Center is a Church of the Brethren ministry education partner with Bethany Theological Seminary, Brethren Academy for Ministerial Leadership, and the districts of Atlantic Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Middle PA, Southern PA, and Western PA.
