This month, the spotlight is on the country of Liberia. As you may know, Liberia has a unique history. It was established by African Americans who left America, to establish a new home on the West Coast of Africa. Liberia is also unique in that it, along with Ethiopia, is one of only two countries that were able to survive the “Scramble for Africa” that resulted in widespread colonization throughout the African Continent.
This occurred within the range of years in which the U.S. Civil War was fought over the issue of slavery. While Liberia resisted being colonized, it is still struggling to overcome many other storms, among which are its current water crisis, and its desperate need to train and ordain ministers to serve needs of people in both metropolitan and rural areas.
To open the discussion about these issues and more, RAF has invited a distinguished group of panelists. They include:
Dr: Charles Jones, Area Director for Europe, the Middle East and Liberia at the American International Ministries;
Dr. Momolu Massaquoi, President of the Liberia Baptist Theological Seminary;
Dr. Ruby Wilson, Senior Pastor of Safe Haven United Church of Christ and President of the New York Metropolitan Association;
Dr. Karyn Carlo, Professor at the Liberia Baptist Theological Seminary and Global Servant for Theological Education with the American Baptist Churches International Ministries.
