Plenary title: Living Vocation: Theological Formation from Life and for Life.
Theological formation fulfils its vocation when it springs from and nourishes the wholistic missional presence of followers of Jesus from Monday through Sunday in every arena of life. This is the vision of the Community of Interdisciplinary Theological Studies and of the International Fellowship of Mission as Transformation, both case studies referred to in this plenary session.
