Lent with Baldwin and Bonhoeffer

6-week course via zoom - Thursdays during Lent 7-8:30pm (Feb 15th-March 21st)

What might Dietrich Bonhoeffer (a Lutheran German theologian) and James Baldwin (a Black, 20th century author and novelist) together have to prophetically speak to our current time? This co-facilitated course, through a combination of presentations, and brief selected readings, will invite a conversation for how these particular perspectives inform our lives as persons and communities of faith. Come join the conversation!
