I invite you to join me and the Adult Christian Formation Committee of St. Francis in reading and discussing Howard Thurman's classic work, Jesus and the Disinherited.
A source of profound wisdom and challenging theological insight, Howard Thurman stands as one of the great philosophical mentors of the Civil Rights Movement. Disinherited, written in the late 1940's, is one of Thurman's most influential works, especially relevant in our contemporary context. Thurman's reading of the Gospels helps us begin to hear the message of those Gospels in a very different way by setting the words and teachings of Jesus in its original context of human suffering and liberation.
Disinherited is intelligent and penetrating, but it is also relatively short (132 pages) and accessible. The book is listed as one of the primary texts in the "Sacred Ground" anti-racism program of The Episcopal Church.
Time: Thursdays, 1 pm to 2 pm, beginning October 22nd
This is an in-person discussion group. We will run the discussion for 4 or 5 weeks, as necessary (not including Thanksgiving). In inclement weather, we will meet in the Narthex, practice social distancing and provide fresh air flow. Chairs will be provided. Please bring a mask.
Thanks and blessings,
