Christine HongDuring the PC(USA)’s annual Evangelism and Church Growth Conference last summer, Christine Hong (pictured)—the Presbyterian Mission Agency’s associate for interfaith relations—memorably told participants, “If you’re not learning something every day, you are not doing interfaith relations right.”

And now—in an effort to realize the very goal she articulated—Hong has begun to teach.

If not every day, then at least every week.

In a unique, proactive collaboration this spring with Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary’s Doors to Dialogue (D2D) initiative, Hong—assisted by two of her Presbyterian Mission Agency colleagues, Rob Fohr (MDiv 2014), a mission catalyst, and Sara Otoum, a social media specialist—is teaching a pilot course called “Multifaith Perspectives on Global Displacement.” The course aims to centralize online activism—especially by young adults—around displaced people, and to explore contemporary human displacement, migration, and immigration through an interreligious and intercultural lens.
