The mission of Magic City Religion is to encourage Samford University undergradates to study the many dimensions of the religious life of Birmingham, Alabama. By sharing their findings we hope to advance the public understanding of religions’ role in our common life.
I have enjoyed your articles and appreciate the research you’ve done. I would like to mention that the Avondale article leaves out a major church: Avondale United Methodist, which is located at 40th Street and 5th Avenue South. https://www.avonumc.net/

Thank you! Yes, I was disappointed that I didn’t get a student to do Avondale. One or two students did it for her initial report but then chose another for the detailed report. I believe I had a student group doing it last spring pre-Covid, but that had to be abandoned due to Covid. I was going to lead a tour of Avondale churches last spring. Avondale UMC was the starting point and star of that tour, but again that had to be abandoned due to Covid.
