If you were going to preach to a robot, how would you begin? Would you introduce the story of Christ as something that could be memorized and passed on? Would you introduce questions of personal behavior and identity? Could robots even understand such a thing? In this engaging talk, Dr. Kirsten Sanders will speak to Theology on Tap on how the story of Christ’s two natures, given in the Chalcedonian definition, helps us to engage questions about artificial intelligence and human existence in the modern world.
Dr. Kirsten Sanders is a systematic theologian whose work has been featured in various publications including Christianity Today, The Hedgehog Review, Comment, Plough, and Mere Orthodoxy. She is the founder and director of Kinisi Theology Collective, a public theology project that aims to bridge the gap between traditional seminary education and the local church.

The social unrest and racial reckoning of the past year have inspired many to consider how faith ought to be lived in a public arena in the Covid era. As social distancing requirements ease, we have an opportunity to examine how we publicly practice our faith to stand in solidarity with those whom society marginalizes. We are pleased to welcome Rev. J. Bryan Hehir, Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Service, Archdiocese of Boston, and the Parker Gilbert Montgomery Professor emeritus of the Practice of Religion and Public Life at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government to lead the Workshop, which will be held in-person at Saint Cecilia Parish Hall and virtually on Zoom.

Join us as we look at our Cory Johnson Program for Post-Traumatic Healing (CJP) trauma work through the lens of literary imagination. Activists, intellectuals and artists throughout contemporary history have eluded to the beloved community as a place and mindset of grace filled justice and reconciliation. Through the words of Dr. Martin Luther King and literary artists including the incomparable Tony Morrison, Reverend Liz Walker presents a meditation on CJP as the model of that beloved community, a groundbreaking antidote for these troubled times.
