Boston University School of Theology’s Trauma Response Program for Congregations
brings together a team of theological mentors, subject matter experts, and community leaders to create a network of support to accompany nine congregations. The program is supported by a diverse and committed leadership team
. As part of Lilly Endowment’s “Thriving Congregations Initiative,” our team affirms that congregational thriving depends on attention to multiple layers of harm (individual/institutional/societal; social/economic/political) and longstanding effects of generational trauma and systemic inequalities. Faith matters in relation to all of these!
