Dr. Rowe to Lead Experiential Learning Weekend with Emmanuel Gospel Center
Dr. Nicholas Rowe, Kenneth and Jean Hansen Associate Professor of Leadership, is co-leading an Experiential Learning Weekend on the History of Slavery in Boston this April with Emmanuel Gospel Center. This walking tour experience is designed to help participants:
- Learn about Boston’s involvement in the North Atlantic Slave trade with a focus on how churches were complicit in and contributed to the institution of slavery.
- Connect the past to the present and consider what implications the legacy of slavery has on living out our faith in Greater Boston today.
- Provide opportunities and resources for Christians to offer both a spiritual and practical response to the legacy of slavery.
As Dr. Rowe states, “the [biblical] imperative to remember is formational for the community defined by God’s redemptive action.” Co-leading the trip with him are Mako Nagasawa, board of advisors member for Gordon-Conwell—Boston, and alumna Megan Lietz (MDiv ’14).
