Pluralism Project Hosts Sustaining Pastoral Excellence Boston Immersion Course Participants

On Saturday, July 11, 1009, the Pluralism Project hosted participants in the “Sustaining Pastoral Excellence Boston Immersion Course” sponsored by the Ecumenical Theological Seminary in Detroit, Michigan in collaboration with Cooperative Metropolitan Ministries (CMM) and Episcopal Divinity School (EDS). The Sustaining Pastoral Excellence (SPE) program is funded by Lilly Endowment Inc., and it “enables a broad spectrum of institutions from a wide variety of denominations in many geographical regions to honor and support pastoral leaders.” The visit to the Pluralism Project, as part of an eight-day itinerary throughout Boston, was an opportunity to discuss “Pastoral Excellence in a Religiously Pluralistic City, Nation, and World,” and to highlight Pluralism Project research both in Detroit, as well as in other multi-religious cities in the US.
