Shaping the Beloved Community in a Divided World

In five days, over 100 people will come to Durham from around the world for the 2009 Duke Summer Institute! The dream for the Summer Institute began over two years ago. God began whispering ideas to Duke Divinity School and to the Center for Reconciliation, calling us to dream of an intensive formation experience for lay people, clergy, and grassroots leaders, hosted at Duke. Since then, we have created a space for deep theological reflection and learning, a space where leading theologians and practitioners spend time in small groups, a space where worship, shared meals, music, and friendship are all central to reconciliation.

Duke provides a unique space for relationships and collaboration
