REMEMBERING THE FORTITUDE OF
LOST AND FORGOTTEN CHURCHES:
with historian Dr. Lisa Toland, Montreat College
The lost and forgotten communities of the ancient church understood hardship, persecution, and difficulty, perhaps better than any others in Christian history. In this fascinating excavation and exploration of these communities, Dr. Williams, a Trinitarian and a history professor at Montreat College, will help us see what we might learn from them, particularly in the midst of the deep challenges presented by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. From the Catacomb Churches and Ethiopian Church to the Syriac-speaking forgotten Church of the East and the Coptics, Dr. Williams will explore what made these unique and inspiring communities distinct within Christianity and reveal the spiritual challenges and encouragements they now offer to 21st-century Episcopalians.
