Tuesdays, October 8, 15, and 29, 6:30-7:45 p.m.
FLC Room 104
Join Pastor Cathy Stone as we read Dear Church: A Love Letter from a Black Preacher to the Whitest Denomination in the U.S. by Lenny Duncan, the unlikeliest of pastors. Formerly incarcerated, he is now a black preacher in the whitest denomination in the US: the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Part manifesto, part confession, and all love letter, Dear Church offers a bold new vision for the church to take on forces of this world that act against God: whiteness, misogyny, nationalism, homophobia, and economic injustice. Duncan gives a blueprint for the way forward and urges us to follow in the revolutionary path of Jesus.
We have a Facebook group for online discussion as well as meeting in person. All are welcome to join us online and/or in person. Please purchase your book at a local bookstore or through Amazon.
