March 1, 2018
Ministry to the Marginal

Violence is not inevitable in stressed and oppressed communities and the building of peace in those communities requires the building of bridges between unlikely collaborators. That's the lesson learned in Boston over three decades of trying to change the trajectory of proven-risk youth and their families.

The session featured Rev. Dr. Ray Hammond, MD ’75, MA ’82, AB ’71, pastor and founder of Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, chairman and co-founder of the Ten Point Coalition, and executive committee member of the Black Ministerial Alliance, Boston, and moderator Stephanie Paulsell, PhD, Susan Shallcross Swartz Professor of the Practice of Christian Studies, formerly associate dean for ministry studies and Houghton Professor of the Practice of Ministry Studies at HDS.
