A conversation with Reverend Dr. Stephen G. Ray Jr. of United Church on the Green

Rev. Dr. Stephen Ray, Jr. and Susan Ray.

Church attendance is on the decline. And the pandemic might not be to blame. Church attendance was falling even before 2020 among every major religion and subgroup.

Coming up this weekend, the United Church on the Green is welcoming Rev. Dr. Stephen G. Ray, Jr. This historic church in New Haven played a key part of the abolitionist movement.

Rev. Dr. Stephen G. Ray, Jr. will be the church's first black minister. Today, he joins us to discuss his hopes for this historic church and welcoming a new generation of parishioners.

Later, we hear from the Yale Divinity School and learn about their involvement in an exciting project called the Living Village Project, which broke ground last week. The Living Village is going to be a net-positive-energy building that will provide affordable housing to students.

GUESTS:

  • Reverend Dr. Stephen G. Ray Jr: United Church on the Green in New Haven
  • Dean Gregory Sterling: Dean of Yale Divinity School; The Reverend Henry L. Slack Dean and Lillian Claus Professor of New Testament
