Foundation for Church and Society 2018-2019

Dr. Michael Heneise of Kohima Institute presented the annual FCS lecture for the academic session 2018-2019 on the topic: Contending with Charisma: Dreams, Christianity, and Authoritative Knowledge in Nagaland. Heneise in his lecture contends that the phenomenon of dream regulates the lives of common people (among the Angami Nagas) to a degree of being authoritative, which ultimately determines social and political events. FCS also organized a symposium on Naga Conflict and Peace Process in collaboration with Forum for Naga Reconciliation and Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Guwahati Campus on March 29, 2019. These engagements have enabled students and public audience to stimulate critical thinking at the same time enhanced deeper awareness of our Naga socio-political settings. We continue to organize ministry internship for our students in the area of social issues, such as, addictions, HIV/AIDS, corruption, women at risk, and so forth.

FCS looks forward to reach out to communities and churches at the periphery, as well as to continue to infuse greater awareness towards our social and spiritual engagements.
