Brown Bag Lunch: Kansas City Statement of Faith
The First Hundred Years
Faith, Polity and Wider Fellowship are the three tenets from which rose the important affirmation of faith adopted by the Congregational Churches in 1913 when the National Council met in Kansas City, Missouri "to affirm traditional congregationalist principles in a form that would meet the needs of the new century."
Visitors to the Congregational House at 14 Beacon Street are greeted by a copy of the Statement cast in bronze on our foyer's wall. Many of us pass the declaration every day, but what does it mean and what part does it play in the history of American religion?
Join Executive Director Dr. Peggy Bendroth as she explores the historic significance of the Statement and its contribution to a full century of religious and social life and thought.
