The Progressive Christian Network of Victoria
invites you to join
Dr Val Webb
“The view from where I stand today”
Reflections on life, context, and theology
Sunday 24th July 2022, 4:00pm to 6.00pm.
(A ‘Zoom only’ Meeting)
Dr Val Webb is an Australian theologian who has worked in the USA and
Australia and written ten books. Val has a long association with PCNV,
having attended its inaugural meeting and spoken here many times.
In this video made last year during COVID for Perth Progressives, Val
reflects on issues on her mind. What made each of us “us”, the good
and the bad? How have our minds changed over the years and why?
She reflects on ageing, agreeing and disagreeing with books written
about it. She talks about losses with retirement and wonders about our
“spirituality” if our minds diminish.
And what of churches – institution, congregations, ordination – as
numbers decline? Given institutional emphasis on attracting the young,
what of the elderly holding these churches together while waiting for the
young – their financial and physical struggles while also caring for partners?
Val will join via zoom for discussion after the presentation.
