Faith in Boston: How Congregations Matter in a Changing Metropolis

Session III: The Multicultural Metropolis and the Religious Construction of Race

Following a demonstration on ministry through dance by Denise Seymour (Roxbury Presbyterian Church), Terri Cissé, a first-year MDiv (master of divinity) student at HDS, presents "The Multicultural Metropolis and the Religious Construction of Race," based on her studies of several Boston-area houses of worship. This is the third panel of a day-long conference on "Faith in Boston: How Congregations Matter in a Changing Metropolis" held April 30 in the Braun Room. A roundtable discussion with the Rev. Hurmon Hamilton (Roxbury Presbyterian Church), the Rev. Daniel Harrell (Park Street Church), and the Rev. John Heinemeier (Resurrection Lutheran Church) follows this presentation.
