After 5 centuries of missionaries, Japan’s Christian population is still less than 1 percent; but Japanese versions of Christianity exist in the media, in the fad of church weddings, and in social programs. Patrick Drazen looks at Japan’s complicated history with Christianity and its status as a minority religion. Based on his forthcoming book Holy Anime!, this presentation takes a humanist approach to both Japan and its version of Christianity.
Our Sunday morning programs run from 10:30 a.m. to noon, and are followed by a coffee hour. Admission is free and open to the public. Our Golden Rule Sunday School for children runs concurrently.
See our Programs page for more upcoming programs.
