The Duke Divinity School Center for Reconciliation is now accepting applications for the 2012 Summer Institute, “The Ministry of Reconciliation in a Divided World,” to be held May 28 – June 2 on the campus of Duke University.

This one-of-a-kind, five-day intensive is designed to nourish, renew, and deepen the capacities of U.S. and international Christian leaders in the ministry of reconciliation, justice, and peace.

Participants will experience in-depth teaching by world-class theologians and ministry practitioners, prayer and worship, shared meals, vibrant conversations, and opportunities to reflect on their own vocation and setting.

Seminars are designed for participants with a range of expertise and experience, and include "Introduction to Reconciliation" taught by Duke Divinity School professor Edgardo Colón-Emeric, "Unfinished Business: Healing the Wounds of History" with anti-apartheid leader Peter Storey, and "Sabbatical for Seasoned Leaders" with peacemaking veteran Bill Lowrey and spiritual director Alice Petersen. Specific seminars will also be offered for leaders in congregations, denominations, and academic institutions.

Applications will be accepted for rolling admission through April 1, 2012 at dukesummerinstitute.com.
