Announcing “We Cry Justice” | Book Club | Next meeting of the Book Club is September 19th
Our book clubs aim to delve into issues in American society and give our community the space to discuss their thoughts. In order to make change in the world, we must first educate ourselves on the injustices Americans face on a daily basis.
Our next bookclub series will be exploring, “We Cry Justice: Reading the Bible with the Poor People’s Campaign”, edited by Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis with a Foreword by Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II. A revolutionary text that offers a unique perspective on some of the most radical passages in scripture, is now available for purchase.
More than thirty contributors spanning different races, genders, geographic locations, professions, and more were brought together to do a deep dive into the true liberation of the gospel, and what it means for poor and low income people. This devotional breathes new life into familiar passages, and centers righteous justice and liberation for poor people as the primary lens through which the Bible is read.

Its message is galvanizing and hopeful: We are a nation of scrappy survivors. We’ve been in dire straits before; we will be again. Hold your people close.”―The New York Times
