The Love Feast: a Labor of Love

Did you know that our Sunday Worship is rooted in a labor movement? Guest Speaker, AJ Blackwood will explore and reflect with our community on the theological foundations of our call to support worker justice, equity and fair treatment. From Siddhartha Gautama, through the life of the early Christian Church, to the Poor Peoples Campaign today, we have been called throughout the ages to serve the worker, the poor, and the abused. We are called by our faith to bring liberation to the oppressed among us. Will we answer the call?
