The Church in Germany After the Wall

September 24, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

This class will look at issues in the German Protestant Church beginning with Unification in 1990, shift quickly to the issues extant today, and then consider parallels to the church in the United States today. This class continues the Living U course which started in early March, before the rest of our spring Living U semester was cancelled. In it, we looked at the role of the Protestant church in the 1989 peaceful revolution in East Germany.

About the Instructor: Dr. Jean Godsall-Myers

A native of the Philadelphia region, Jean taught German at Widener University from 1982 to 2006. In 2006 she moved with her husband, Reverend Stephen Godsall-Myers, to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Wittenberg Center in Germany. In 2010 they returned to the States and began living in Harleysville. In 2017 the Godsall-Myers volunteered for seven months in Wittenberg as part of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
