Religion and piety have always played a crucial role during massive migrations: both among many of those who welcome and assist migrants as well as among migrants who adopt religion as an essential tool of resilience. On the negative side of the equation, religious minorities may be persecuted and forced to migrate because of discriminatory policies. Paolo Naso will address the role that religion plays in global migrations in this free lecture.
Paolo Naso is national coordinator of Being Church Together, a partnership between Protestant groups in Italy and North America. He uses his skills and experience in immigration and communication to bring immigrants into Italy’s Waldensian and Methodist churches.
The lecture will be held at 7 p.m. on the new campus of United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities: 767 Eustis St., Suite 140, St. Paul, Minnesota 55114.
