Thought Matters Conference
Friday, 23 August–Sunday, 25 August$90 – $160
Thought Matters is the annual conference organised and facilitated by The Salvation Army Tri-Territorial Theological Forum (TTTF – soon to be renamed). The TTTF exists to facilitate theological discussion which informs ministry practice. It is composed of representatives from each of the contributing territories – former AUE/AUS and New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa.
The Conference Theme, Freedom to Flourish, seeks to explore the concepts of vocation, calling, identity and faith in a world offering increasingly inordinate choices. This theme encourages exploration of such concepts as they contribute to human flourishing. Having historically been confined to discussion about Clergy, more recent scholarship has expanded notions of ‘calling’ and ‘vocation’ to include the choices we all make about how to express ourselves through work and life. Is it realistic to imagine that everyone has a calling to fulfill? What is to be said about the reality for many people that life and work are unfulfilling and tedious?
In the ever-present search for meaning and purpose, what does Christian faith have to say to the relationship between individuation and self-realisation along with a broader ethic of contributing to the common good through the ways we live and work? These and many more questions are open for exploration as together we explore what it means to have freedom to flourish.
