Five months after the death of Michael Brown, the community of Ferguson, Missouri, continues to work toward healing and define common goals - in many cases, with the help of religious leaders and institutions. Laurie Maffly-Kipp, professor of religion and politics, reflects on the role of faith and church leadership in social and political movements, both in Ferguson and throughout American history. On February 5, the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics will host Religious Responses to Ferguson, a roundable discussion with local leaders.
