"Beautiful Bodies, Prosperous Lives and Global Identities:
The Rise of New Goddess Cults in Thailand"
Rachelle Scott studies the history of Theravada Buddhism in South and Southeast Asia, with an emphasis on contemporary Buddhism in Thailand. Her first book, Nirvana for Sale?: Buddhism, Wealth, and the Dhammakāya Temple, examined contemporary debates over monastic and lay wealth in Thailand. Her current research focuses on stories of powerful female ascetics and spirits, the impact of new media on religious authority and community, and the role of the Buddhist sangha in global Buddhism.
Refreshments will be served prior to the lecture.

|CGCM presents "The Remarkable Partnership in the East African Revival"|
Wednesday, February 20, 2013
12:00 - 1:30pm
Doctoral student Daewon Moon will share his recent research at the next doctoral lunch/lecture series at noon on Wednesday, February 20. The title of his lecture is "The Remarkable Partnership in the East African Revival."
The East African Revival, one of the most notable and influential spiritual renewal movements of Africa in the twentieth century, emerged within the Church of Uganda beginning in the mid-1930s through a remarkable partnership between English medical missionary Joe Church and prominent indigenous leaders from Buganda province. Initially an attempt to revitalize the established church in Uganda from its spiritual formalism, the revival grew into an inter-tribal and international movement whose impact extended to Europe, North America, India, and Brazil. The indispensable influence and contribution of African revivalists to the development of the movement will be discussed in detail. The event is sponsored by the Center for Global Christianity and Mission.
Young Adult Mission Opportunities
Mission opportunities are before us for young adults, ages 18-30! Methodist people have always known face to face engagement with poor and suffering people to be a means of grace. We meet Christ and receive grace as we extend ourselves in mission. Let us make the most of this opportunity for serving, growing and learning.
For over six decades, The United Methodist Church through the General Board of Global Ministries has offered opportunities for young adults to engage in faith and justice centered mission service and discernment within the United States and around the world. There are three exciting ways for young adults to engage this summer. All three programs are based on the philosophy of mutuality in mission - mission with, not mission to or for others. Participants come from everywhere and go everywhere, where they are trained with fellow young adults, engage in cross-cultural exposure, learning, and hands-on service while exploring the links between faith and justice. They learn and live out the transformative gospel of Jesus Christ, engage in Christian reflection during and post service, and examine how to continue God's mission in their own lives, communities and vocational context.
The US-2 Fellowship is a domestic, 24 month, mission-service program for adults in the United States, ages 20-30. US-2s are trained for three weeks with fellow young adult missionaries and serve with Methodist partnered organizations throughout the US. Duration: July 2013 - July 2015. http://www.umcmission.org/Learn-About-Us/News-and-Stories/2013/January/0111-Young-Adults-Invited
Applications due Feb 15, 2013.
The Mission Intern Fellowship is now a 25 month, mission-service program for adults from around the world, ages 20-30. Mission Interns are trained for three weeks with fellow young adult missionaries, serve with Methodist partnered organizations in another country for 20 months, and integrate their international mission experience in their home country for 2 and a half months. Duration: July 2013 to August 2015. http://www.umcmission.org/Learn-About-Us/News-and-Stories/2013/January/0111-Young-Adults-Invited
Applications due Feb 15, 2013.
Short Term Opportunity
The Global Justice Volunteersprogram is a 10 week summer
mission-service program for adults from around the world, ages 18-30. Global Justice Volunteers are trained for one week with fellow young adults from around the world, serve together with Methodist partnered organizations in another context and/or country for 9 weeks. Duration: June 8 to August 11, 2013. Applications due March 1, 2013. http://www.umcmission.org/Learn-About-Us/News-and-Stories/2013/January/0131-Apply-to-be-a-Global-Justice-Volunteer
