Big Read: Trouble I’ve Seen: Changing the Way the Church Views Racism

“Just as Jesus defied Herod and then continued on with the work of liberating healing and justice-filled shalom, so too must Christians subvert every way that our society’s racial hierarchy is allowed to exist. This subversion must happen first and foremost in the church.”  Drew Hart, Author

This fall, Advent Lutheran of Madison would love to have participants in your congregation join a multi-congregational inter-denominational BIG READ of Drew Hart’s book Trouble I’ve Seen: Changing the Way the Church Views Racism, with the opportunity and resources for a variety of events and ways to engage. The book is very accessible and engaging for what is not an easy topic, and we have recently confirmed for the author to be here for the conclusion of the Big Read the weekend of December 1 & 2.
