The Connection Between Faith and Social Action: An Effort at Lived Theology

Posted on December 27, 2015 by PLT Staff

Presentation by Rev. George Telford as part of the City and Congregation Workgroup Meeting Four in Charlottesville, Virginia. Telford reflects on his career as a pastor-theologian and Christian activist, with special attention given to his ministry and activities in Charlottesville.

Excerpt: “This church, by the grace of God, is one of the places which has borne a responsibility for hearing, wrestling with, and acting upon the Word as it has touched our corporate life. Because it has, it now has become a congregation in which some Word for our crucial problems can be heard and in which, among many members, concern is evident.”
