Global Immersion - See Where We Are Going And Where We Have Been
The Southeast Conference UCC Theology Among the People and Lancaster Theological Seminary once again present Global Theological Education Immersion Trip to Thailand - Equipping Leaders to Serve in a Religiously Pluralistic World
January 3 – 21, 2012
Under the auspices of the Theology Among the People (TAP) program and through a generous grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, the Southeast Conference is sponsoring an intensive 2 ½ week immersion trip to Chiang Mai and Bangkok, Thailand from January 3 - 21, 2012. The goal of the trip is to provide an experiential basis for global theological reflection in terms of inter-religious and intra-religious dialogue, conflict transformation, and peace-building.

"Changes and Enduring Realities"
First, what was changed or what was different from the last trip in 2008 was the group with which I traveled. This time we had seven seminary students and a faculty member of Lancaster Theological Seminary along with our own seven participants from the Southeast Conference. The two groups merged beautifully, in light of their conscious efforts to collaborate, adapt, and to exercise love and patience. Second, the Institute of Religion Culture and Peace's (IRCP) program had changed-the length was three weeks long with the inclusion of a special trip to Mae Sot, a small city in the northwestern border of Thailand that holds large-size Burmese Refugee Camps.
Listen in on the reflections of our world travellers by reading their journal entries from the trip and join them vicariously in this transforming experience. >> Link Here to Read Journal Entries.
