Our Divided Political Heart and the Election of 2012

Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne delivered the annual Sorensen Lecture at Yale Divinity School on Nov. 27 on the topic “Our Divided Political Heart and the Election of 2012.” 

Dionne, a practicing Roman Catholic, is one of the most prominent commentators on the American political scene today and writes and speaks frequently on the subject of faith, values, and politics.

The topic of his Nov. 27 talk was a spin-off from the title of his most recent book, Our Divided Political Heart: The Battle for the American Idea in an Age of Discontent (2012).  In that book, Dionne challenges the concept of radical individualism as the guiding principle for American life and argues, rather, that the true American tradition embraces a balance between love of individualism and devotion to community.  And, in response to popular diatribes against “big government,” he suggests that Americans have historically viewed the federal government as an active and constructive partner with the rest of society in promoting prosperity, opportunity, and American greatness.

Memorial Service in memory of Professor Emeritus Abraham Malherbe

Abraham Malherbe, the Buckingham Professor Emeritus of New Testament Criticism and Interpretation at Yale Divinity School, died suddenly and unexpectedly on Friday, Sept. 28 from an apparent heart attack.  He was 82 years old and taught at YDS from 1970 until his retirement in 1994.  He was named the Buckingham Professor in 1981.

Malherbe was a prolific author and made major contributions in several areas. He is best known for his work in Hellenistic moral philosophy and early Christianity, especially the Pauline tradition. He made contributions both to Hellenistic moral philosophy and to the ways in which early Christians were influenced by it. His work on The Cynic Epistles: A Study Edition (1977) and Moral Exhortation: A Graeco-Roman Sourcebook (1986) made a number of important texts available to the wider range of scholars. His "Hellenistic Moralists and the New Testament" (ANRW) may hold the distinction for being the most cited forthcoming article in the history of New Testament studies. Both before and after its appearance, this article provided a framework for scholars to think about how to appropriate Hellenistic moral philosophy. Malherbe did this in detail in several of his own books, especially, Paul and the Thessalonians: The Philosophical Tradition of Pastoral Care (1987), Paul and the Popular Philosophers (1989), and his Anchor Bible Commentary, The Letters to the Thessalonians (2000). He was working on a commentary on the Pastorals for Hermeneia when he died.

The Responsible Company: Lessons From Patagonia

Authors Yvon Chouinard and Vincent Stanley are featured during a conversation on environmentally responsible business practices from their book, The Responsible Company: What We’ve Learned from Patagonia’s First 40 Years.

In their book, Chouinard and Stanley draw on their 40 years' experience at Patagonia, Inc. and efforts by other companies to provide advice on how to create responsible, green business practices during difficult economic times.  The motto of Patagonia, a manufacturer of outdoor clothing and gear, is, "Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis."

Youth Ministry and Discerning God’s Action

Almost every youth worker was been confronted by the question, “What does God want me/us to do?” Whether around big changes to the ministry itself or around individual young people trying to discern the direction of their lives, we seek to follow God’s leading or God’s will. But how do we go about such processes of discernment? How do we know when it is God leading us and not just our conscience or something else? This presentation will explore a process of discerning with young people that focus on the action and direction of God in their lives.

Professor Obenchain is a scholar of comparative religion and culture. In this lecture she discusses current interest on the part of Chinese scholars and students in both religion and in the academic study of religion. To illustrate, she reflects on Chinese ways of understanding the Christian contribution to Confucian cultivation and the Confucian contribution to contemporary Christian moral life, especially as regards human rights.
