April 14 - “Welcoming the Migrant” (Session 3) featuring on video, Miguel De La Torre ("Solidarity with the Crucified" and "Treasures"), Ethicist. Miguel De La Torre, discusses what it means to have solidarity with people who are “crucified” on our borders. To be “saved” from our privilege is to join them in their struggles and liberate them from the system that has brought them to risk their lives. How do we know of the reality of God? It is in touching the wounds of God in these wounded people that we come to realize the paradox of forsakenness and presence.
April 21 - “Welcoming Those to the Table” (Session 4) featuring Mayra Maceda-Nolan ("Presence is Everything"). What does it mean to model the incarnation? Prophetic activist and pastor, Mayra Macedo-Nolan, insists that the incarnation is about being at the table with people, without agenda or pretense. It is the act of God moving into the lives of people through risky presence.
April 28: "A Christian Perspective on Climate Change" ~ Join us for this discussion led by church member Curt Dell. This class will also feature a video with Climate Scientist Katharine Hayhoe. Join the discussion on this vital and intriguing topic in Westminster Hall.
