Adult Education: Jesus and the Disinherited (Book Study)
February 26, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
From February 26-April 2, Adult Education will be reading and discussing Howard Thurman’s Jesus and the Disinherited. Thurman was a mentor to Martin Luther King Jr. at Boston University, and King carried a copy of Jesus and the Disinherited in his pocket during the Montgomery Bus Boycott. In this season of Lent, we hope that this text will encourage us to confront systems of injustice so that we may begin to embody a new way – one that combats violence, uplifts the poor, and brings God to the “Godforsaken.” You do not need to read the book to participate in the class, but those who are interested may purchase it here on Amazon. It is also available at Baltimore City and County libraries. This book study is also intended to complement First & Franklin’s Wednesday night Lenten Meditations, which will take place from March 1-29, at 6:00pm.
Location: Reid Chapel or Zoom
