Sunday Seminar

Sunday, Apr 15 | 9:45 am

Faithful Resistance: Gospel Visions for the Church in a Time of Empire by Rick Ufford-Chase. Jesus taught under the shadow of the Roman Empire. Yet even as the Empire exalted the rich and powerful, Jesus preached that the truly blessed are the poor, the hungry, and the weeping. How might we respond if we discover that our churches have more in common with the Empire than with the truly blessed?
