In light of Pastor Matt's sermon series Imago Dei and Brook Hills statement on Race, Racism, and the Gospel, City Ministries will be leading two book studies on the topic of justice and racial reconciliation.
The first of these studies will be on Tim Keller's book, Generous Justice. This book was recommended by City Ministries Pastor, Keith Stanley. In this book, Keller challenges many preconceived beliefs about "doing justice" and presents the Bible as a fundamental source for promoting justice and compassion for those in need. In Generous Justice, he explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous justice. This book offers readers a new understanding of modern justice, human rights, and racial reconciliation that will resonate with both the faithful and the skeptical.

The second of these studies will be on Mark Vroegop's book, Weep With Me. This book was recommended by Pastor Matt Mason. In an effort to bridge the canyon of misunderstanding, insensitivity, and hurt, Mark Vroegop writes about the practice of lament, which he defines as "the biblical language of empathy and exile, perseverance and protest." Encouraging you to "weep with those who weep" (Rom. 12:15), Vroegop invites you to mourn with him over the brokenness that has caused division and to use lament to begin the journey toward a diverse and united church.

Both of these studies will be held through Zoom. We look forward to you joining us in these important conversations.
