Dr. Christine D. Pohl “Living in Community: Cultivating Practices that Sustain Us”


Aug 15, 2016
07:30pm – 09:30pm

Lakeside Chautauqua welcomes Dr. Christine Pohl, Associate Provost and Professor of Christian Ethics and Church in Society at Asbury Theological Seminary, to Hoover Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 15. There will be a book signing following her lecture.

Dr. Pohl will also serve as Preacher of the Week from Aug. 14-18.

The focus of her lecture will be on her book Living into Community: Cultivating Practices that Sustain Us. Dr. Pohl will share her extensive research about the core practices needed for a vibrant community.

“Religious as well as secular research have recently rediscovered that humans need to ‘belong’ and describe various versions of our longing for community – a place where one is known, or at least a group where everybody knows your name. Many of us are looking for community,” writes Pohl.

Dr. Pohl earned her Bachelor of Science from Syracuse University, her Master of Arts in theological studies from Cordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and her Doctorate in ethics and society from Emory University.

She worked for various ministries for 11 years before attending seminary. She owned a Christian bookstore for six years and later worked in advocacy and refugee resettlement. Dr. Pohl currently serves as an occasional advisor for homeless shelters and refugee programs. She also helped plant four churches.

Dr. Pohl has been the recipient of grants for research from the American Academy of Religion, the Lilly Endowment and the Louisville Institute. She has served as a board member for the Louisville Institute and for the Society of Christian Ethics.

In addition to Living into Community, Dr. Pohl has authored several other books, including Making Room: Recovering Hospitality as a Christian Tradition.
