November 8, 2020, Worship

 

 

Adult Ed will meet for book discussion via Zoom from 9:15-10:15 a.m. The current discussion book is “Reading While Black.” Contact info@brynmawrchurch.org for link.

Join us for a 7-week discussion of Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation As An Exercise in Hope by Dr. Esau McCaulley. Dr. McCaulley is a professor at Wheaton College. His book delves into how the Bible can be applied to topics like policing, being a political witness, the Black identity, and slavery. He explains how the Black church tradition is one of justice, hope, and dignity and that these elements can all be found in the Bible, even though it has sometimes been used as a tool to segregate and enslave.

Discussions are Sundays at 9:15 to 10:15 a.m.via Zoom from November 1 to December 20 minus Thanksgiving Sunday.

Here is a link to a You Tube interview about the first chapter which is a good introduction.
