Sacred Resistance (8 weeks)

This study involves an open discussion of the book, by Ginger Gaines-Cirelli, as well as the United Methodist Church Social Principles. The book seeks to answer questions like:

  • When we see multiple instances of ‘wrong’, how do we choose which one to address?
  • What historical, biblical, and theological safety nets can be relied on?
  • How can we care for others and take care of ourselves, so that our ministries and lives are sustained?

Led by Nancy Poe.  Book cost: $10
