J&RR Book Discussion

Room: S-223

Join us for rich discussion and new insight at the Justice & Racial Reconciliation Book Club. Come to one or as many as you like.

Wednesday, June 27, 7pm, S-223: America’s Original Sin by Jim Wallis
A deeply personal call to action in overcoming the racism ingrained in American society. Wallis speaks candidly to Christians–particularly white Christians–urging them to cross a new bridge toward racial justice and healing. Probing yet positive, biblically rooted yet highly practical, this book shows people of faith how they can work together to overcome the embedded racism in America, galvanizing a movement to cross the bridge to a multiracial church and a new America.
Wednesday, July 11, 7pm, S-141: Seeking Refuge  by Stephan Bauman, Matthew Soerens, Issam Smeir
Three experts from World Relief, a global organization serving refugees, offer a practical, well-researched guide to the issue. 1) Who are refugees and other displaced peoples? 2) What are the real risks and benefits of receiving them? 3) How do we balance compassion and security? Drawing from history, public policy, psychology, many personal stories, and their own unique Christian worldview, the authors offer a compelling portrayal of the plight of refugees and the extraordinary opportunity to love our neighbors as ourselves.             
Wednesday, July 25, 7pm, S-223: Just Mercy  by Bryan Stevenson
A powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice—from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time.  Bryan Stevenson, executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery, Alabama, has won national acclaim for his work challenging bias against the poor and people of color.
Wednesday, August 8, 7pm, S-223: Love Undocumented by Sara Quezada
Christian author Sarah Quezada takes readers deep into the world of the U.S. immigration system. Follow her as she walks alongside her new friend, meets with lawyers, stands at the U.S. Mexico border, and visits immigrants in detention centers. With wisdom from Scripture, research, and these experiences, Quezada shows us a Savior who never knew a stranger. Respond to an invitation to turn away from fear and enter a bigger story.
Wednesday, August 22, 7pm, S-223: One Blood by John M. Perkins
Author Dr. John M. Perkins is a leading civil rights activist and has dedicated his life to the cause of racial equality. In this, his crowning work, Dr. Perkins speaks honestly to the church about reconciliation, discipleship, and justice… and what it really takes to live out biblical reconciliation. One Blood is his final manifesto on race, faith and reconciliation.  In it, Perkins makes a strong case that there is no institution on earth more equipped or capable of bringing transformation to the cause of reconciliation than the church.
Friday, September 14, 7pm, S-223: Welcoming the Stranger  by Matthew Soerens and Jenny Hwang
World Relief immigration experts Soerens and Yang offer a Christian response to immigration, putting a human face on the issue. With careful historical understanding and thoughtful policy analysis, they debunk myths and misconceptions and show the limitations of the current immigration system. Ultimately they point toward immigration reform that is compassionate, just, and sensible, as they offer concrete ways to welcome and minister to immigrant neighbors.
