Albany’s Underground Railroad and Faith Communities in Action
February 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Join with Paul Stewart and congregants of Westminster Presbyterian Church on Sunday, February 11 for a sermon, “Albany’s Underground Railroad and Faith Communities in Action” to be delivered by Paul Stewart at the 10am service.
Faith communities were as conflicted as the nation in the antebellum period of American history. Some supported the institution of slavery, others supported its abolition, still others were unsure of their position. Some denominations split over their differences. Some chose to dedicate their energies to work to eliminate the stranglehold of this system of inhuman bondage, acknowledging their calling to ensure that the good news message of equality and justice applied to all. Join with Paul Stewart at Westminster Presbyterian Church on Sunday, February 11 to hear more about the work of those faith communities who chose to work for justice and equity in their tumultuous times.
