Seminar - A Short History of Congregationalism
What is Congregationalism and who are Congregationalists? To find these answers we look back into the history of this influential spiritual tradition whose roots so many Americans share. This one-day seminar will provide an overview of the Congregational Christian tradition, from its beginning to the present-day. In an informal setting, we will cover three and a half centuries, from Congregationalism's English Puritan roots to the denominational mergers and divisions which created the national organizations as they exist today.
Executive Director and historian Peggy Bendroth will lead an in-depth exploration and help participants discover the origins of their own beliefs and gain a greater understanding of their shared foundation.
There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion. Lunch is provided.
