Abstract: Chinese elders living in the United States are faced with increasing challenges to meet their needs for social support. This study utilizes an ecological framework to analyze social support among older Chinese immigrants within a Christian Chinese church community. Seven months of participant observation and ten face-to-face, in-depth interviews were conducted at one Chinese church in the Southern U.S. Findings disclosed that gender, living arrangements, working experiences, ability to drive, and English language skills affect the support the elders sought, received, and provided. Results show that the Chinese church can be a viable source of supplementary support for Chinese elders. Some elders, however, felt the support from the church is insufficient, particularly in terms of emotional support. This study suggests an opportunity for Chinese churches to be more proactive in better understanding and providing services that meet these elders’ different needs and desires.

Abstract: Studies in sub-Saharan Africa find that Pentecostal/Evangelical (P/E) church members engage in less risky behavior than mainline church adherents. Doctrinal messages about sex are fairly consistent across different Christian denominations, so reasons for these differences are not yet clear. Building on Garner’s typology of church characteristics related to sexual behavior, we employed focus group discussions with youth and interviews with youth pastors to investigate differences between denominations regarding: youths’ individual-level sex-related beliefs and behavior; church teaching on sex; method of indoctrination about the topic of sex; subjective religious experience; exclusion (sense of separation from the larger society in terms of sexual values); and socialization. Preliminary findings indicate no different in what denominations teach about sex, but multiple differences in how they do so.

Abstract: This study examines a dialectal tension between resistance and accommodation within the Black Church during the Modern Civil Rights Movement, a paradoxical yet fundamental form of accommodating strategy for practical resistance emerges that does not resemble popular protest in the deep south that consisted of marches, sit-ins and boycotts. It could be argued that the majority of the Modern Civil Rights Movement was influenced heavily by Christian principals—which provided additional substance for the materialization of an accommodating form of resistance. Antonio Gramsci, Franz Fanon, Hans Baer and Rupe Simms view hegemony as a protest altering mechanism that requires strategic planning to reverse the transmitting effects of a socially controlling force. Gramsci and Fanon unveil the particular components of hegemony exposing the psychiatric manipulation that I will use to show the effects within the church—while Baer and Simms provide extended interpretation of Gramsci’s hegemonic theory and provide plausible solutions to counter negative ramifications.
Specifically, I find that hegemony is one of the reasons why some blacks in south during the modern Civil Rights Movement from approximately 1955-1968 did not participate like MLK because of the dissemination of manipulative spiritual and cultural discourse emphasized by the current power structure to dehumanize and dominate black people.
While many churches in the rural south did adhere to a popular Judeo-Christian worldview they managed to conceptualize God and scripture through their worship experience personalizing spirituality as an aid to maintain sanity and provide livelihood. Their religion was the foundation for resistance.
