Oliver R. Phillips: A Conversation | January 18

Gordon in Boston and the "Sacred Conversations" series of the Second Church in Dorchester have partnered to present a conversation with Dr. Oliver Phillips around the issues outlined in his latest book: Culture Trumps Religion, Every Time: The Ethno-cultural Challenge for the Church.

Dr. Phillips is an ordained minister in the Church of the Nazarene who has served a long and fruitful ministry as a pastor, author, gifted speaker and key denominational leader. He is the author of numerous books and articles on ethnic and multicultural ministry, including: How to Sponsor and Nurture an Ethnic Church -- Without Losing Your Mind, and E Pluribus Unum -- Opportunities and Challenges in Multicultural Ministry.

In this session, Dr. Phillips will explore the thesis of his latest book; that the ethnic-specific congregation is not a step-child of the "real church," but is indeed an authentic and genuine expression of humanity's response to God's call to worship and to serve. A question and answer session will follow a brief presentation.
