Kumasi, 01 October, 2021 / 8:53 pm (ACI Africa).
Honoring and celebrating living legends who shaped theology in Africa is expected to be the focus of a virtual biennial event that is organized by the Arrupe Jesuit Institute (AJI), a Ghana-based social justice centre of the Jesuit North-West Africa Province.
Scheduled to take place on Friday, October 1, the Sarpong Theological Lecture (STL) is a biennial forum that honors the intellectual legacy of the Catholic Archbishop emeritus of Ghana’s Kumasi Archdiocese, Peter Kwasi Sarpong.
“One of the objectives of this webinar is to honour the intellectual legacy of emeritus Archbishop Peter Kwasi Sarpong by exploring issues and trends in African Christianity with boldness, originality, depth, understanding and acuity,” the Executive Director of the Accra-based institute, Fr. Addy Kpanie told ACI Africa Thursday, September 30.
Fr. Kpanie added, “This is something that we at the Arrupe Institute would like to revisit in terms of honouring and celebrating our living legends.”
Archbishop Sarpong, the Jesuit Priest further told ACI Africa during the interview, “has done a lot in terms of theology with a focus on inculturation.”
