This group will continue an ongoing discussion about racism in American society. The group is committed to caring, honest, and safe conversation on issues of race, seeking how we can bring our part to God’s intended rule of reconciling love to neighbor and world. The book basis for our conversations is Michael Eric Dyson’s, Tears We Cannot Stop, A Sermon to White America.

Resilient Reformer Resumes Wednesday, September 27, 6:15 p.m.,3rd floor
In our reading and study last spring of T. F. Lull and D.R. Nelson’s Resilient Reformer: The Life and Thought of Martin Luther, we left Luther holed up in Wartburg Castle. What next? We had followed Martin from school in Eisenach to the university in Erfurt. It was those 95 Theses the Augustinian monk and Bible Professor put up in Wittenberg that led him into confrontation with the powerful Roman Church. At the Imperial Diet in Worms he declared: “I cannot do otherwise, here I stand, may God help me. Amen.” This was 1522, but Luther’s life, though always endangered, was far from over. This fall Kristine Wallace will lead a class through the rest of Lull and Nelson’s book: the Peasants’ War, marriage and fatherhood, conflicts with Erasmus and Zwingli, and more. Newcomers are welcome to join the class as we explore the meaning of those decisive vents 500 years ago.
