Wes Granberg-Michaelson will speak to the Calvin community about how Christianity’s role in the world has shifted, what that means for the church in the United States, and how we understand our faith today. He will feature themes from his new book, Future Faith: Ten Challenges Reshaping Christianity in the 21st Century, which examines major influences on the faith and practice of Christianity in the world today and what they mean for the church in America.
Wes has had a remarkable career, starting in a staff role with US Senator Mark Hatfield, then as managing editor of Sojourners magazine, as an executive with the World Council of Churches in Geneva, then as general secretary of the Reformed Church of America, and now as a founder of the Global Christian Forum. The Forum is a fellowship of leaders from all streams of world Christianity, including the World Council of Churches, the World Evangelical Alliance, the Pontifical Council for Church Unity, several Orthodox bodies, and the Pentecostal World Fellowship. It is tempting to believe that Wes knows everyone and sees all in world Christianity, given the broad scope of his experience and engagement.
Do come, hear him out, and ask questions.
