Jesus and the Disinherited: A study of the work of Howard Thurman

Beginning on Sunday, January 27th, Deacon Jeffrey Toliver will lead a 4 week discussion of Jesus and the Disinherited by Howard Thurman.  A quick summary: “In this classic theological treatise, the acclaimed theologian and religious leader Howard Thurman (1900-1981) demonstrates how the gospel may be read as a manual of resistance for the poor and disenfranchised. Jesus is a partner in the pain of the oppressed and the example of His life offers a solution to ending the descent into moral nihilism. Hatred does not empower–it decays. Only through self-love and love of one another can God’s justice prevail.”
