About The Event

An Interfaith Discussion

The First Congregational Church of Williamstown, United Church of Christ (FCC) announces a virtual interfaith forum to discuss Christian nationalism in the United States. The forum seeks to inspire us all - and specifically our faith communities - to join together and speak out against Christian nationalism.  On January 6, 2021, a mob of insurrectionists and pro-Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, our citadel of American Democracy in Washington, D.C. in the name of Jesus. They carried crosses, signs and flags promoting Jesus and prayed for a takeover for Christianity, followed by violent acts of destruction and grave personal injury. “These actions do not represent true Christian values”, emphasized Rev. Mark Seifried, interim minister of the FCC.  “Christians and people of all faiths must speak out against the hijacking of the basic values of all faiths and the separation of Church and State in America.”  Panelists include:

  • Rev. Mark Seifried, Moderator
  • Rev. Dr. John C. Dorhauer, UCC General Minister and President
  • Reverend Sheila Sholes-Ross, Pastor, First Baptist Church in Pittsfield
  • Rabbi Pam Wax
  • Imam Bilal Ansar

The program will include a pre-recorded statement from Presiding Episcopal Bishop Michael Curry.  Learn more about the forum here (PDF) For further information, contact: Pastor Mark Seifried: pastor@firstchurchwilliamstown.org; 413-458-4273 Bridget Spann: organizer@firstchurchwilliamstown.org; 413-458-4273 Sherwood Guernsey: sherwood@sglawoffice.com; 413-822-589 Co-sponsored by the Southern New England Conference, UCC
