Being Church with Diverse Neighbors

Being Church with Diverse Neighbors

Bishop Emeritus Mark Hanson led this Faith + World class session on Wednesday, Sept. 30 on the topic of “Being Church with Diverse Neighbors.” Hanson discussed how a commitment to listen and learn from our neighbors might inform the ministry of Mt. Carmel and our daily faith lives.

Hanson is the founding director of Interfaith at Augsburg: An Institute to Promote Inter-religious Leadership. This new institute reflects Augsburg’s continuing commitment to the faith and theological tradition of the Lutheran Church and Augsburg’s commitment to the growing diversity of students, faculty and staff.
