Sunday Formation: Lenten Preaching and How to Fight Racism

February 28 @ 9:00 am - 9:45 am

Want to do a deeper dive with our Lenten Preaching Series this year? On Sunday mornings from 9:00-9:45, Calvary clergy, the Ven. Mimsy Jones, and LPS coordinator Heidi Rupke will discuss articles and other writings by LPS speakers. Read along with them ahead of the discussion or just tune in for a lively conversation about everything from poetry to the planet, music to systemic injustice. Then catch the LPS speakers themselves the following Wednesday at noon and 6:30 p.m.

This Sunday: Join Paul McLain, Scott Walters, Amber Carswell, and Heidi Rupke for a discussion of Jemar Tisby’s latest book, How to Fight Racism: Courageous Christianity and the Journey toward Racial Justice. His book provides a model of awareness, relationships, and commitment to dismantle a social hierarchy long stratified by skin color. Jemar is our Lenten Preaching Series Marcus Borg Endowed Speaker and will be our noon preacher and evening podcast guest on Wednesday, March 3. While not necessary to join the discussion, if you would like to read Chapter 1 of the book prior to the forum, email Paul McLain at pmclain@calvarymemphis.org for a copy.
