A Theology of Religious Pluralism: Lived Theology and Civic Wholeness

Posted on December 26, 2015 by PLT Staff

Recording of a lecture presented by Sarah Azaransky at the Spring Institute for Lived Theology 2011 in Charlottesville, Virginia. Azaransky outlines how lived theology influenced her work on Pauli Murray and discusses the possibilities of a pedagogy for religious studies that is informed by lived theology. The lecture begins at the 3:05 minute mark.

Excerpt: “Murray insisted that to recognize the American story as Ishmaelite, so her family’s story as archetypical of the larger American story, requires embracing a new kind of American history and that this can transform how contemporary Americans understand themselves as related through histories of violence and coercion, but Murray hoped also, perhaps, stories of resistance and hope. And so in this way, Murray insisted that every American is implicated in the family drama.”
