Moravian in America: Original Visions, Long-Term Costs

Saturday, November 5, 2016 | 9:00am – 3:00pm
Trinity Moravian Church, Winston-Salem, NC.

The 18th century Moravian Church embraced a radical, creative theology and practice – one that was multi-national, multi-racial, and nonviolent. Evangelism, concern for the marginalized, and the ordination of women were the order of the day. Yet, over time and on into the 20th century, Moravians shed many of these distinctions as they sought acceptance in a changing American context. This event explored the costs of this adaptation and how the original visions of our forebears might continue to challenge and inspire us today.

Presenter:
The Rev. Dr. Riddick Weber, Associate Professor of Pastoral Ministry and Chaplain at Moravian Theological Seminary
