This February: “Religion and Nationalism in the Age of Globalization” with Bruce Douglass

Join us Sundays in February (February 2, 9, 16, & 23) at 9:00 a.m. for this special series lead by R. Bruce Douglass, Director Emeritus, Reformed Institute of Metropolitan Washington.

Nationalism is a modern phenomenon, and it has been greatly influenced by religious beliefs and practices ever since it first appeared in the latter part of the eighteenth century. That remains the case today, as nationalist movements around the world profess to be defending the religious traditions of their societies against the pressures imposed by globalization. But those claims are often contested by other people of faith, including adherents of the very religions in whose name the nationalists claim to speak.  We are living in a time when the relationship of religion to national identity is once again a highly contested matter, therefore, and the theological as well as the political issues at stake are fundamental. The purpose of this series of talks is to explore some of those issues from a (Protestant) Reformed perspective.

Session #1 –  Contemporary Challenges to the Idea of the Religiously Defined Nation

Session #2 – The “Pluralist” Alternative

Session #3 – Hard Issues: Immigration and Demographic Change

Session #4 –  Citizens of the World?
