Focus on Anthropology: The image of God and COVID-19 (What Does it Mean to be Human) with Dr Christa McKirland (Focus Webinar Series 2020)

What does the image of God have to do with COVID-19? Everything. When we think about what it means to be human, both from looking at Genesis 1 and at the true image, Jesus Christ, it actually changes how we view ourselves, others, and even our daily vocation. In this webinar we will be talking about this in more detail.

This webinar was originally advertised as: [We will look at what it means to be made in God’s image in light of the Genesis accounts and the New Testament. Specifically, humans seem uniquely oriented toward God and we will discuss how we can know this and what this means for how we live and treat others.] This webinar will cover similar topic but with the lens of our current COVID-19 situation. 

Christa McKirland is Carey’s new lecturer in systematic theology, starting in March 2020.She comes to Carey from the Logos Institute at the University of St Andrews in the United Kingdom, where she received her doctorate in analytic and exegetical theology. Christa founded and is the executive director of Logia, an organization created at the invitation of the Logos Institute to support women pursuing postgraduate theological education.

The reading accompanying this webinar is the PDF C McKirland, What's so unique about being human? Logo Institute booklet.


This webinar series provides a stimulating training resource for church leaders, practitioners, and volunteers. Each month a new focus illuminates topics from theology, Bible, pastoral care, mission, youth, history, and culture.
