On Sunday, September 30, 2018, following an emotional week across the United States, Rev. Dr. Stephen Ray, stepped into the pulpit at St. Pauls United Church of Christ (Chicago) to address “the different way” that we as a people of God, who loves all and not only the powerful, can respond now (and always). Thanks to the community of St. Pauls and to senior pastor, Rev. Matt Fitzgerald for welcoming Dr. Ray and sharing his message.
Rev. Dr. Stephen G. Ray Jr. is the newly appointed President of Chicago Theological Seminary. In addition, he is the President of the Society for the Study of Black Religion. Having written and lectured broadly in the areas of Systematic Theology, African American religion, human rights and the intersection of religion and politics, President Ray’s current work focuses on reinvigorating the public square as a place for all, and reclaiming a vital expression of progressive religion in that project.
