Adult Classes

Hope Is Here: Practices for Pursuing Justice and Beloved Community
Wednesdays | 6:00 – 7:00pm 
The Wright Place, 2nd Floor, Room 20

In Hope Is Here! author Luther Smith describes how we truly perceive and join “the work of hope,” enlivening us to a life that is oriented toward immediate and future experiences of personal fulfillment, justice, and beloved community. This book prepares us to engage racism, mass incarceration, environmental crises, divisive politics, and indifference that imperil justice and beloved community and deliver the inner resources necessary to work for change through its interpretation of hope. If you desire to commit yourself to the ministry and work of justice and beloved community, this book will provide helpful guidance for a life sustained by God’s gifts of hope and love. 

This class will use the book Hope Is Here by Luther E. Smith, Jr., available on Amazon and Cokesbury
