Professor Joerg Rieger on Religion, White Supremacy, and Capitalism
- Date: Sunday, June 20, 2021
- Time: 9:30am–10:30am EDT
- Location: Zoom (Information in Description)
Please join us for a special two-part adult formation series on Religion, White Supremacy, and Capitalism, led by Vanderbilt University Professor and Theologian Dr. Joerg Rieger. For more than two decades, Dr. Rieger has worked to bring together theology and the struggles for justice and liberation that mark our age. His work addresses the relation of theology and public life, reflecting on the misuse of power in religion, politics, and economics. His main interest is in developments and movements that bring about change and in the positive contributions of religion and theology. His constructive work in theology draws on a wide range of historical and contemporary traditions, with a concern for manifestations of the divine in the pressures of everyday life. We are eager to hear his thoughts on the intersections of religion, white supremacy, and capitalism, especially as we continue our journey towards being an antiracist church. Special thanks to First Church member Karlene Griffiths Sekou for introducing us to Professor Rieger.
