This course focuses a vision for congregations of the faithful at work with God in the world on the urgent moral and social crises of our times. While churches are widely seen as frequent defenders of establishment injustices, their potential for effective, focused moral witness against the major ills of human society is often overlooked. Their proven track record of work to reduce human misery, to minister to the poorest and persons most at risk is an important history to be retrieved and critically evaluated. We will direct our critical attention to Christian churches during Civil Rights Era, and their legacies, in hopes that we will be inspired to engage Christian communities in the ongoing quest for social justice today.
