The Interactive Presence of Faith Communities in the Urban Ecology

Wheaton College

Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 7:30 – 9pm

The Center for Urban Engagement’s Annual Spring Lecture will feature Katie Day, author of Faith on the Avenue: Religion on a City Street and professor of social ethics at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia.

Congregations are often an invisible presence in the ecology of cities, overlooked by policy makers, planners and developers as having agency in the vitality of neighborhoods. On the other hand, religious leaders can overestimate, even romanticize, their impact. Drawing on her extensive research on urban religion, Day will focus how the dynamics of cities shape, and are shaped by, communities of faith.

This lecture is free and open to the public and will take place in room 145 of the Meyer Science Center at 7:30 p.m. For more information, please contact the Center for Urban Engagement at cue@wheaton.edu.
