June 30 — August 11
How can God’s faithful people have a voice in the pressing concerns of our society — poverty, racism, environmental protection? The Bible is filled with stories where marginalized people break repressive silence and speak against it. Join us as we examine these stories and consider situations in our lives where we need to stand up, speak out and act for justice.
We will spend seven-weeks studying the book Interrupting Silence: God's Command to Speak Out by Walter Brueggemann. Class participants are encouraged to purchase the book on Amazon or at Half Price Books, which has a limited number of copies. This class is sponsored by King of Glory’s Rebels With a Cause.
