Wess Daniels, A Convergent Model of Renewal: Remixing the Quaker Tradition in a Participatory Culture Wess Daniels, A Convergent Model of Renewal: Remixing the Quaker Tradition in a Participatory Culture Tuesday, December 5, 7pm A Convergent Model of Renewal addresses a perceived crisis for faith traditions. How do we continue to value tradition while allowing for innovative and contextual expressions of faith to emerge? How do we foster deeper participation and decentralization of power rather than entrenched institutionalism? Drawing on insights from contemporary philosophy, contextual theology, and participatory culture, C. Wess Daniels calls for a revitalization of faith traditions. In A Convergent Model of Renewal he proposes a model that holds together both tradition and innovation in ways that foster participatory change. This convergent model of renewal is then applied to two case studies based in the Quaker tradition: one from the early part of the tradition and the second from an innovative community today. The model, however, is capable of being implemented and adapted by communities with various faith backgrounds. C. Wess Daniels has a PhD from the School of Intercultural Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary and is a released minister (pastor) of Camas Friends Church. He taught courses at George Fox Seminary and Earlham School of Religion.
