Grace Forum Online with Dr. Philip Clayton

The Forum at Grace Cathedral

Join us for Grace Cathedral’s flagship conversation program online with the science, philosophy and theology scholar and activist Dr. Philip Clayton who is working toward a genuinely ecologically sustainable civilization. Could COVID-19 help us win the fight against climate change? The pandemic has elicited a global response unlike anything we’ve seen before, and carbon emissions have dropped worldwide. This crisis also presents an opportunity, so how can we all―scholars and activists, secular and religious leaders, the private sector as well as the public―begin to live and think right now the way our grandchildren will have to live and think, impacted by the climate crisis? Join us to hear from teacher, speaker, author and activist Philip Clayton in conversation with Dean Malcolm Clemens Young as he reflects on what actions we can take to shift the structures of human life on this planet toward a genuinely ecological civilization. As a scholar, Clayton (Ingraham Professor, Claremont School of Theology) works at the intersection of science, philosophy and theology. As an activist (president of EcoCiv.org, and the Institute for Postmodern Development of China), he works to convene, facilitate and catalyze multi-sectoral initiatives toward ecological civilization.

He and I have recently returned from Seoul, Korea where we were the guests of Seoul's Mayor Park Won-Soon presenting at a major conference to discuss how Korea might adopt the concept of an 'ecological civilization' which Philip along with John Cobb Jr. and others have been instrumental in advancing in China.

He helped launch an early collaboration of Jewish, Muslim, and Christian scientists, expanding it into a global, seven-year program; organized conferences at Harvard on Judaism, Buddhism, and science; and has participated in programs on Islam and science and on Abrahamic partnerships in the Philippines, Indonesia, France, Turkey, Qatar, and the UAE. Currently he is working to organize the Justice track for the upcoming Parliament of the World Religions. Philip Clayton played a major role in conceiving and founding a multi-faith university, Claremont Lincoln University, serving as its first provost and Executive Vice President. He worked with religious leaders to set up administrative structures and to work toward accreditation for Bayan Claremont, a Muslim graduate school, as well as expanding the university’s programs to include the Dharma traditions of India and the religious traditions of Southeast Asia.

Finding God in Everyone and Everywhere w/ Philip Clayton and Andrew Davis

Homebrewed Christianity Podcast

The number of people with doubts, questions, and experiences that send them out from the religious tradition of their birth is growing. For many religion is left behind completely, opting for an untraditioned spirituality, and others find the idea of God, Ultimate Reality, or any other substitute for the transcendent as intellectually incompatible with our scientific age. In Philip Clayton and Andrew Davis’ new book you get to hear a collection of personal narratives from some of the most brilliant contemporary thinkers about their return to God. In How I Found God in Everyone and Everywhere you will see a variety of starting points, twists, turns, and conundrums, but a broad network of conclusions that testify to an emerging picture of a deeper spiritual reality In this conversation I get to talk to my dear friend and mentor, Philip Clayton, and one of his lucky current students and scholar, Andrew Davis. We tackle a host of topics from mysticism, panentheism, the viability of theism, the relationship between historic religious traditions and philosophical affirmation of the divine, and some other exciting goodies. The book itself includes chapters from Deepak Chopra, Richard Rohr, Matthew Fox, Rubert Sheldrake, Cynthia Bourgault, Ilia Delio, John Cobb, Loriliai Biernacki, Marjorie Suchocki, and Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson. This episode is sponsored by the brand new book Keep Christianity Weird by Michael Frost. Check it out and get ready for Michael’s visit to the podcast.
