2013 J. J. Thiessen Lectures: Empire Erotics and Messianic Economies of Desire
The second lecture examines the birth of Christian imagination in a non-Christian empire, follows it through with Joseph Conrad's analysis in Heart of Darkness and asks how this relates to Mennonites in contemporary North America.
Beginning with an exploration of the distortion of messianic desire into the self-serving erotics of empire, the third lecture will ask how the messianic community can live out an alternative liturgy of service in the everyday.
