Christianity and Indian Culture
Tuesday, April 9, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
Looking at Christianity and Indian Culture
In December/January, a group of twelve Wake Forest University faculty, Divinity students, and undergraduates traveled to India to study Christianity in India. This "Multicultural Contexts for Ministry" experience explored the Hindu religious context in India in order to understand the various forms Christianity has taken there. In this presentation, trip participants will discuss photos from the trip to analyze themes of religion and culture in relation to the Catholic Church in India, the Church of South India, Evangelical missions, and the Mar Thoma and Syrian Orthodox traditions.
Presenters: Jessica Chapman, Tasharia Harris, Andrew Luisi, Mandy Mizelle, Sara Reynolds, Katie Schlimmer, Ashley Sims, Caitie Smith, Jessica Stokes, Chelsea Yarborough, and Dr. Michelle Voss Roberts.
