Summer Session 2024: Faith and Democracy in Crisis

Few of us can deny that we live in a world rocked by multiple crises, surrounding us seemingly on every side, rattling our frayed nerves day after day. As tempting as it may sound, burying our heads in the sand will only make things worse. Rather than be rocked by unexplained problems, facing our crises with eyes wide open can help us understand and act responsibly to work for change. 

The roots of our crises run deep. So this summer, we will read three brilliant, groundbreaking books that help us diagnose root causes, reexamine the entanglements of our faith systems, and respond with care and wisdom. 

  • June: Christianity Corrupted: The Scandal of White Supremacy by Jermaine Marshall (Interdenominational Theological Center) 
  • July: Heathen: Religion and Race in American History by Kathryn Gin Lum (Stanford University) 
  • August: Defending Democracy from Its Christian Enemies by David Gushee (Mercer University) 

Join us this summer for talks by the authors, online discussions that dig deeper, and live conversations with one another during monthly office hours. 

Join us for a month, a season, or a year or more!
