                       Synodality and Listening Reports From the Field

                                      4:00 - 5:30 p.m. (PT)       5:00 - 6:30 p.m. (MT)       6:00 - 7:30 p.m. (CT)

All interested members are invited to a CTSA-sponsored panel and conversation reflecting
on the practices of the synod/synodality
. Three CTSA members will speak about their recent involvement with the synod on synodality, listening groups with marginalized communities,  and the Asian bishops conference.  What are some lessons learned from synodal processes around the world? What have been the challenges and the insights?  How are theologians serving the church in this ongoing process?
