Pastor Dixon invites you to join him for a Zoom book discussion on America’s Original Sin, by theologian and journalist, Jim Wallis.
What is the mission of the church? What is the relationship between church and society? Does the pastor in the pulpit have an obligation to address events happening in the streets beyond the sanctuary doors? Or should the worship space be reserved for the pure proclamation of the Gospel? What would the Gospel even look like in a “pure” form, not contextualized by our history and experience? Wallis’s book challenges us to ask these questions in an urgent way, especially with regard to the ongoing reality of racial inequality in our country. Join Pastor Dixon for this discussion and to consider these issues in our own context at Mount Olivet.
The Zoom link and some questions for the discussion will be sent to you on or just before September 22 to the email you use to register.
Please read the book prior to the Zoom Discussion. It is readily available to purchase online. Please let Katie Stevenson know if you have trouble finding it.
