reflections on faith and justice from an urban minister's perspective
B"HHi Arloa,Sorry to be so late in commenting here. So how was the response to your class? Was it well attended? I take it that this based on the book by John Perkins, Beyond Charity. Am I correct?Blessings,Shlomo
Yes, it was very well attended, I think about 200 people. They were very engaged and responsive. It was predominately a white audience but I think, for the most part, they want to understand what they can do about poverty and racism. I think many of them are pretty new to the discussion. Willow is taking a new approach to their Wednesday night services and implementing this class approach. I think it is a great idea. I just did one class in an eight week series about compassion and justice. Thanks Shlomo!
B"HHi Arloa,200 people? That's a good number to work with. I'm glad that you had this opportunity and I hope those who are 'new to the discussion' will continue to stay engaged and even grow deeper. May the LORD richly bless you and your efforts in His service,Shlomo
