Event Details: Scholar Wesley Granberg-Michaelson discusses the major demographic shifts in the Christian world and the impact on efforts for Christian unity. Granberg-Michaelson is a distinguished visiting scholar at the Library of Congress John W. Kluge Center. His forthcoming book looks at the impact of the shift in Christianity to the Global South. Specifically, he examines how the diversity and expressiveness of denominations in Africa, Latin America and Asia impact efforts of Christians to remain in relation to one another. Raised with a strong evangelical background, Granberg-Michaelson attended Princeton Seminary and served as an aide to U.S. Senator Mark O. Hatfield before entering the ministry. He was appointed as general secretary of the Reformed Church in America in 1994 and served for 17 years. The event is free and open to the public. A wine and cheese reception follows.
