2022 Annual Symposium on Transforming Culture

The Dancing Couple painting by Jan Steen

The theme for the 2022 Symposium on Transforming Culture, ‘See How They Love One Another’: Community and the New Evangelization, looks to the example of the early Christian community as a model and guide for building authentic Christian community in the world today. The early Christians developed a clear identity as a people “in the world, but not of the world,” whose life of selfless and sacrificial love for their neighbor witnessed to the Greco-Roman world a new way of being and living. Christians today are faced with the challenge of creating and sustaining evangelizing communities, resisting the forces of consumerism, individualism, and secularism at work in our contemporary world.
