Date: Oct 27– Dec 1, 2014
Instructor: The Rev. Dr. Dong Ha Kim
Details: Is it bad math or ground breaking truth? It is how the Trinity is sometimes described. In nutshell, the Christian faith is rooted in the historic conviction that the one God is triune, existing as Father, Son and Holy Sirit. The Trinity, therefore, is an important doctrine for the Church to espouse. One of the most important things that it says to believers is that God is dynamic and communal. Our community on earth, namely the Church, is called on to mirror or be the same. In other words, the Church’s whole life – its worship, fellowship, and mission should reflect this revelation and understanding of God. This course will succinctly address some of the key issues concerning the Church in each of these areas from a contemporary Reformed perspective.
Instructor: Dong-Ha completed both the M.Div. and the Th.D. degree at the Knox College, Toronto. For the latter degree, his thesis was entitled, “The Significance of the Trinitarian Koinonia for a Contemporary Ecclesiology: The Contributions of Miroslav Volf and John Zizioulas.” No stranger to the teaching ministry, Dong-Ha has taught various courses at several seminaries; most notably, Tyndale University College, and Knox College. He currently serves as the minister of Word & Sacrament at the First Presbyterian Church, Brandon, Manitoba.
