THE STRANGER IN OUR MIDST: THE BOOK OF RUTH
AS A RESOURCE FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM

3:00 p.m.  |  Sanctuary

Scholar, pastor and author Dr. Robert Williamson Jr. is our guest speaker Sunday, Feb 24. Dr. Williamson is the author of the book The Forgotten Books of the Bible: Recovering the Five Scrolls for Today, which church members have been reading this winter.

Williamson will be speaking in the Adult Forum at 9:40 a.m. in the T.K. Young Room; and at 3:00 in the sanctuary. He will also be preaching that morning.

Williamson is associate professor of religious studies at Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas, where he teaches courses in biblical studies. He is also the founding pastor of Mercy Community Church of Little Rock, a multi-denominational worshiping community that welcomes all people–especially those living on the streets. As both a scholar and pastor, his interest is in the ways that the Bible speaks to life in the contemporary world -- particularly about the call the Bible places on Christians to resist the powers of systemic injustice that oppress the many in order to enrich the few.
