The Bay Area Armenian Church community is a close-knit one. It would seem that this community could hardly be otherwise, given the history that the people of Armenia have experienced. The Armenian genocide, the oppression of communism and the Soviet Union, and the fall of the Shah of Iran all had great impact on the Armenian Christian community in the United States. These interactions are frequently seen through social, religious, and political events that often revolve around the focal point of the "old country." Armenian history is a frequent topic at these events, as is the future of Armenia. Given this background information, this paper considers how such a focus on historical Armenia can be consistent with life in the United States. Related to the first question, the paper also considers how this history affects the modern Armenian faithful in the United States.
