This chapter transgresses the old adage, ‘never discuss religion or politics’. Taking a dialogical approach, the similarities and differences in how we can understand the articulation of events within church and social movement communities are discussed. Adopting the format of a conversation, the authors’ examine their differing conceptual positions and practical experiences, establishing points of similarity and difference. We argue that that contemporary social movement and religious discourse and practice frequently finds expression through formal and informal events, and conclude that maybe the two are not as far apart as we may have first thought.
