Most Influential Students

Question: 
Who have been your most influential students (intellectually, theologically, and popularly)?
Publication Month: 
October 2013
Author - First Name: 
John B.
Author - Last Name: 
Cobb, Jr.

Since I enjoy recalling and rejoicing in former students, I appreciate this question as a chance to reflect in a distinctive way. My first response is that each of them has found her or his own way to such an extent that ranking them is quite meaningless. For example, I think of some who have given leadership to process theology in Japan, Korea, and India. How great their influence may be I do not know, and I will not include them here.

Acts 1:15-17, 21-26

This text follows the general theme of legitimating the early Jesus movement via appeals to the Hebrew bible and the work of the Spirit. It also emphasizes continuity with Jewish history by reinforcing the number 12—12 disciples/apostles, 12 patriarchs, 12 tribes of Israel. A quick Internet search results in literally millions of sites that discuss the significance of “12” in numerology, mathematics, and the Bible.

Jury Names 2013 Whitehead Award Winners

WIFF logoThe jury for the 2013 12th Annual Whitehead International Film Festival is pleased to announce its choice for the Whitehead Award. The jury has chosen a film that deals with a subject all too common in our contemporary world: the displacement of persons from their homeland for reasons of personal safety and security. Despite institutional safeguards to help such people as they attempt to settle in a new land, the obstacles are formidable: linguistic challenges, family strains, financial burdens. What are the resources for creative transformation in such a situation? Through the child in the film we experience the power of imagination and poetry, offering transcendence, hope, and promise. The jury gives the Whitehead Award to the Austrian film, “Your Beauty is Worth Nothing.”

The jury gives its honorable mention to a film taking us into the universal experience of grief. The journey within the film parallels the grieving process of pain, memory, and transition. In scenes of exceptional beauty, the film explores the courage to be open to new modes of human community despite and even because of one’s loss. Loves of the past continue to live and enliven the present, entering into time’s continuous flow. The jury honors Japan’s beautiful film, “Dearest.”

#1 “Dearest”
#2 “Almanya”

NEXT film festival and class: January 17-20, 2014
