The study group is part of an international movement of folks interested in discussing
current theological and cultural ideas,
particularly as these are espoused in the journal from which the "circle" takes its name.
The Center Valley group, organized by Drs. Chapp, Howsare, and Loughlin, consists of faculty, students and alumni of the department, along with a variety of friends of the department who are interested in the topics of discussion. The circle gathers 4-6 times each semester, usually at a faculty member's house. Typically, the 20-25 members will read and discuss an article of current interest that has been sent by email ahead of time; other formats include attending a concert or watching a movie, followed by discussion.
