Sanctuary Room 2
with Dr. Michael Hegeman
World Christianities: Each week we will explore the different ways that the Christian faith has taken shape and flourished among the world’s cultures and peoples. Encountering the faith of Christians of different cultures teaches about our own embrace of faith and how our culture has shaped the way we see Jesus and his Church.
Week 3: The birthplace of Christianity - Middle East
Ancient churches, descended from the first Christians, have thrived for two millennia in the lands that surround the birthplace of Christianity. These churches today face struggles to survive in the midst of global conflicts, but still have something to teach us as the curators of ancient traditions and risky faith.
