Reminder: Theology, Spirituality and Cancer Symposium

From the symposium organisers:

Just in case you were planning to come but haven’t registered yet we thought we’d send this quick reminder about the upcoming two-day symposium and public lecture on Theology, Spirituality & Cancer on 20-21 February 2014.

The Theology, Spirituality and Cancer symposium, jointly sponsored by Laidlaw College and Theology at the University of Auckland, is is an interdisciplinary meeting exploring dialogue between theological (including biblical), religious, philosophical, spiritual, healthcare and pastoral arenas, and will include presentations by biblical scholars Dr Tim Meadowcroft and Dr Caroline Blyth, and practical theologian Dr Stephen Garner among others. The symposium will be of interest to academics and practitioners, including religious ministers, chaplains, counsellors and healthcare practitioners in related areas. It will address topics such as theodicy, cancer therapies, end-of-life care and pastoral challenges as well as exploring the insights a theological, religious or spiritual perspective can bring to an understanding of all aspects of cancer. These areas will be explored through presented papers, keynote addresses and a public lecture.
