The Social Gospel, Then and Now, Rev. Tiffany Triplett Henkel
May 21, 2017 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am EDT
The Rev. Walter Rauschenbusch served and developed his theology of the Social Gospel over 100 years ago, a theology which has only grown in relevance this past century. Challenged by neo-orthodoxy and embraced in the American civil rights movement, Rauschenbusch’s understanding of the Kingdom of God continues to provoke modern Christianity and the Church’s role in social transformation. Rauschenbusch Metro Ministries, the community service arm of Metro Baptist Church, serves the most vulnerable in Hell’s Kitchen, where Rauschenbusch developed his theology. Rev. Tiffany Triplett Henkel, Pastor of Metro Baptist Church NYC, speaks about the work of Metro Ministries and the history and impact of Walter Rauschenbusch. Rev. Tiffany Triplett Henkel holds degrees from Samford University and Princeton Theological Seminary. She sits on the boards of a number of community organizations.
