Northern Appalachia is home to deeply-rooted local cultures in a beautiful landscape.  Conflicts defined by environmental and economic issues are fierce for both communities and churches.  This seminar will give students an inside look and an opportunity to consider strategies for dealing with conflict in and around ministry.  The environmental history of the landscape’s use and abuse, the shape of human cultures, and the history of tightly held religious traditions will frame discussions with religious, environmental, and industrial leaders from the region.

Date: June 2016 ( Exact days TBA)

Beginning at Lutherlyn Arbor Village, Pennsylvania.

Cost: TBA
Deadline for application:  March 1, 2016 Deadline for payment:  April 1, 2016.
