Church and Society in Africa

CWC’s Kyama Mugambi sat for a meal and conversation with Dr Michael Glerup from Yale University on September 21st to talk about his work as the Director of the Project on Religious Freedom and Society in Africa. The project aims to catalyze conversations around church and society in Africa engaging theologians and pratictioners from the academy and the church. The role of religion in public discourse in Africa is cannot be overstated. Of this, Prof Lamin Sanneh, the D Willis James Professor of World Christianity at Yale University writes, "The only reason Africans have turned, and continue to turn, to religion is because they see religion as something necessary and integral to their lives: religion makes living and what lies beyond personally meaningful. That is something the world is unable to do for them."
Glerup hopes to see several workshops on the continent which gather leaders and scholars around the theme, "Faith, Freedom, and Society as described in The Accra Charter of Religious Freedom and Citizenship." [You can find the Charter Here]
