Biblical Foundations of the Dominican Charism

Dominican University

January 24, 2018 – 5:00pm to 8:00pm

Join Sr. Laurie Brink, OP for the “Diane Kennedy, OP Lecture and Dinner – Fire in My Bones: Biblical Foundations of the Dominican Charism”.  For 800 years, women and men have taken up the mantel of Dominic and proclaimed God’s justice and mercy to a world bankrupted of both. This lecture proposes that a three-fold biblical foundation—the Word Prophetic, the Word Incarnate, and the Word Proclaimed—informs and sustains the Dominican charism, and provides direction for all those who seek to build a more holy and just world. A Dominican Sister of Sinsinawa, Laurie Brink is an Associate Professor of New Testament Studies at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago.
