Professor of Theology Steve Guthrie was invited to participate in a six-day Truth and Reconciliation Pilgrimage through the American South. The pilgrimage included 30 participants; mostly scholars engaged in the study of liturgy and worship. 

The group visited New Orleans, Jackson, Selma and Montgomery and explored the complicated role of faith and worship in slavery, the Civil Rights movement and in current issues of racial justice. The pilgrimage was organized and funded by the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship.
