"Who Are We?: Christian Nationalism, White Supremacy and Pathways of Liberation"
April 15, 2021, 11:15am-12:45pm, Livestream on hamline.edu/stream

The insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6th, 2021, opened the eyes of many people in our nation--and including the world--to the religious views, politics and aims of Christian Nationalism and its intersections with bigotry, violence and white supremacy. To unpack and understand what happened against the larger movements of history, religious traditions and injustice, the following guests have been invited to share in a panel of conversation as Hamline University's 2021 Mahle Panel in Progressive Christian Thought:

  • The Very Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas, Dean of the Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary, New York City, and Canon Theologian at the Washington National Cathedral; author of Stand Your Ground: Black Bodies and the Justice of God.
  • The Rev. Adam Lawrence Dyer, lead minister at First Parish in Cambridge Unitarian Universalist, Cambridge, Massachusetts; author of Love Beyond God: Meditations.
  • Robert P. Jones, CEO and founder of Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI), Washington D.C.; author of White Too Long: The Legacy of White Supremacy in American Christianity.
  • Katherine Stewart, investigative reporter covering religious liberty, politics, policy for the New York Times, NBC and The Washington Post; author of The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism.
