Theologies of Bricks and Mortals

Please join Bricks and Mortals for a Quarterly Learning Session and NYSCOC "Who is My Neighbor" Seminars for what will be a fascinating panel discussion on "Theologies of Bricks and Mortals." Panelists -- including the renowned New School Professor Mindy Fullilove -- will discuss both theological and practical implications of houses of faith serving their larger communities. This seminar will seek to build on the theological insights of the "Who is My Neighbor" Seminars, Dr. Mindy Fullilove's work on "root shock," and Rev. Dr. Schaper's work on "removing the pews." Relevant to both urban and rural participants, we will draw on this first generation thinking as part of our bridging our rural-urban divide.
