Shane Claiborne: "Tearing Down the Walls"
Come hear renown speaker, activist, and best-selling author Shane Claiborne on Monday, October 1 at 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary. Join us for live music from Caleb Trask, a lecture from Shane, and a Q&A.
Shane will be speaking on "Tearing Down the Walls.” From picket fences and gated neighborhoods to office cubicles and prison cells, we live in a world of walls. We can end up lonely people…stuck in the ghettoes of poverty and the ghettoes of affluence. But God is all about tearing down walls. We are not alone. Stories of compassion and reconciliation invite us into the promise that the gates will not prevail. Poverty and injustice become personal, as we gain the eyes to see the suffering around us. The Gospel comforts the afflicted and afflicts the comfortable…but is good news to all of us.
