Book Study: Just Faith (Thursdays)

January 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Thursdays, January 14, 21, and 28, 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.

Just Faith: Reclaiming Progressive Christianity by author Guthrie Graves-Fitzsimmons is a call to action for progressive Christians to reclaim our place in our national discussion of faith and politics. According to new research from the Public Religion Research Institute, there are over 35 million consistently progressive Christians in the United States. Majorities of American Christians support reproductive justice and LGBTQ+ rights. Yet they’re erased from our public narrative–only mentioned as outliers to the fundamentalist norm. In Just Faith, Graves-Fitzsimmons provides a blueprint for this type of resurrection based on his advocacy work at the intersection of religion and American politics.
