Does faith, especially as it is expressed in creeds and confessions, have a legitimate place in academic theology and biblical interpretation?
Perhaps you've wondered how your faith can play a positive role in doing academic theology well. Is it just a bias that gets in the way of thinking clearly and doing good scholarship, or is it in-fact key to knowing God?
What place do traditions like the creeds, confessions or statements of faith that your church holds to, or UCCF's Doctrinal Basis have in doing theology? Are they cages that restrict our ability to interpret the Bible and let it speak for itself, or are they interpretive keys that we can't do without?
Join Theology Network's first talk of the term to explore these questions and the role that tradition and statements of faith can rightly play in bringing together your faith and academic theology. There will be short talk interspersed with discussion, followed by a time of Q&A.

Why not join as a group?
If there are a few of you at your university studying theology, or your are part of a local Theology Network hub, why not join this talk as a group? That way you can talk throught the discussion questions as a group in person.
If you are attending as an idividual, don't worry, there will be a breakout room for you to join for the sections of discussion.
