A Conversation with Jürgen Moltmann and Mark Gornik

Posted on April 23, 2015 by PLT Staff

Recording of a talk given by Jürgen Moltmann and Mark Gornik at the Spring Institute for Lived Theology 2005 in Charlottesville, Virginia. Moltmann and Gornik discuss the Christian presence in the West Baltimore, Maryland, community of Sand Town and go on to speak about the different presence of Christian community in the United States, in Germany and across the globe.

Excerpt: “Well I found it consoling to start with a confession of faith, that we now confess our Christian faith together with the whole of Christianity on earth. Then we are small group here and a small group there, but we belong to the great Christian family all around the world, whether they are Methodist, Korean, Presbyterian or whatsoever, through this confession of faith we are one, and part of the whole of Christianity on earth. And therefore we have a kind of solidarity that is stronger—sometimes at least—than the loyalty to our own country. I am so to speak a citizen of two kingdoms, one is the whole of Christianity on earth and the other is the state of Germany.”
