Did you miss out on the riveting eDARE (Discernment and Radical Engagement) 2021 webinars last October? Or do you want to catch the sessions all over again?

Last October 2021, Council for World Mission (CWM) hosted eDARE: a virtual event where theologians, pastors, poets, artists, and activists came together to reflect and present their insights on the challenges and opportunities for life. eDARE 2021’s theme “Rise to Life: Confessing witness to life-flourishing communities”, was an opportunity to critically engage with current forms of Public Theology.
