Wednesday Night Book Club October 2019

We hope you’ll join us October 16th, 23th, and 30th from 6:00-7:00pm as we read and discuss “Dear Church: A Love Letter from a Black Preacher to the Whitest Denomination in the US,” by Lenny Duncan.

Lenny Duncan is the unlikeliest of pastors. Formerly incarcerated, he is now a black preacher in the whitest denomination in the United States: the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

Part manifesto, part confession, and all love letter, Dear Church offers a bold new vision for the future of Duncan’s denomination and the broader mainline Christian community of faith. Dear Church rejects the narrative of church decline and calls everyone–leaders and laity alike–to the front lines of the church’s renewal through racial equality and justice.

More information about the book, as well as a sign-up sheet for participating and ordering the book will be posted on the kiosk (or you may purchase the book on your own).

Please see Pastor Jason if you have questions.
