What does loving our neighbor mean in our day? This five-week series led by author and ethicist Dr. Reggie Williams will articulate the connection between the way of Jesus and justice. The series encourages participants to live faithfully into the commandment to love our neighbor as ourselves.
The first session will examine how the construct of race harms our understanding of ourselves, of Christ, and of Christian community. The fuller understanding of Christ leads Christians to address these problems by engaging in social justice as the way of Jesus. To illustrate this, Dr. Williams will teach about several key figures.
