Description

religion + life = politics

We live in a “majority minority” city, in which some of those minorities are religious ones. In other places in our world, Christians are in the minority. How can we live together in peace, rather than violence? Given our differences, can we even pray together?

What does it mean to be a member of a minority religion? How do minorities balance their religious-minority status with other aspects of their identity? What are the tensions? And what are the blessings?
