The Ronning Centre has worked with webmaster Dylan Anderson to create a new look for our site. Distinctive elements include a higher profile for our International Fellows, notes on recent activities of our Fellows (including their work with the Ronning Centre and in other venues), as well as In the News with links to current media stories relating to religion and public life. You will also find our usual event information and announcements.
David Goa has been invited to participate in the Halki Summit on a small island near Istanbul, Turkey. The conference will take place from 8-10 June 2015. Details on the conference can be found at the conference website. This site also includes information about the first Halki Summit, which featured speaker Bill McKibben, whose talk for the annual Augustana Theme was co-sponsored by the Ronning Centre and can be viewed here.
The Ronning Centre is pleased to announce publication of Three Perspectives on the Sacred: Healing Wisdom from the Desert, the Mountain, and the Cosmos by our 2014 Augustana Distinguished Lecturer, John Chryssavgis. This publication can be ordered from the Augustana Bookstore by calling 780-679-1139.
A celebration of this publication, and our other recent publication (The Christian Responsibility to Muslims) will be held on 15 May 2015 from 12pm-1:30pm at the Ronning House. The event is free and open to all. A light lunch will be served.
