“The African Roots of Ancient Christianity”

Saturday, June 4, 2011
9: 30am – 12pm

Christianity often popularly has been projected to African Americans, as well as others, as a Faith imposed on their slave ancestors and their culture after they were brought to the United States. However the reality is that ancient Apostolic Christianity itself, from its very beginnings, was (and is) indigenous to Africa and also to the culture and spirituality of many of the slaves brought to America.


Fr Moses Berry, an African American, Eastern Orthodox Priest and Lecturer will share his own personal journey of discovery and its implications for the Faith Community today in understanding historic Christianity. Fr Moses is also the president of the “Brotherhood of St Moses the Black,” an ecumenical Christian organization that seeks to further the awareness of ancient Christianity in African history and culture.

Open to the Public. All are Welcome.
