2018 TheoProbe: Living with the Embodied God, Winter Park, Colorado

Feb. 4-9, 2018 Bible

TheoProbe is an annual 5-day continuing education event and retreat for clergy and/or lay leaders focused on learning, worship, fellowship and recreation in the winter beauty of the Rocky Mountains. Beginning Sunday evening, attendees experience daily lectures from esteemed professors, worship, preaching and fellowship with ample time set aside for recreation such as downhill or cross-country skiing, snowboarding, snow-shoeing, hiking or study and rest in the beauty of a mountain resort.

Theme: Living with the Embodied God
Description: Most streams of Christianity hold that Jesus was fully human and fully divine, but we have a hard time recognizing the implications of this belief. When we separate Jesus’ divinity from his humanity, we underestimate the potential and the offense of the incarnation both in our teaching and in our preaching. This year’s TheoProbe will imagine the importance of embodiment from a biblical point of view. Our presenters will lead us in exploring what various New Testament writings have to say about embodiment—Jesus’ and our own—and in considering the implications for how we think about God, the nature of vulnerability, self-image, disability, pastoral leadership, human dignity, community and the hope of resurrected life.

Registration includes hotel accommodations and meals at Winter Park Mountain Lodge.
