Freedom Rising: The Politics of Jesus

April 4, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

White Christian fascism is rising in this country, in part, because we have so badly distorted the story of who Jesus is. An honest reckoning with Jesus’ politics as depicted in the gospels is impossible to reconcile with the racist, anti-immigrant, pro-gun, and anti-abortion policies that are too often defended in his name. This Holy Week, join a conversation between two of the country’s foremost theologians to truly ask: What Would Jesus Do?

To explore this issue further, join a free, public dialogue between Dr. Obery Hendricks and Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis. Dr. Hendricks is a professor at Columbia University and the author of The Politics of Jesus and Christians Against Christianity Dr. Lewis is Senior Minister at Middle Church, author of Fierce Love, and a prophetic public theologian who has written, preached and worked for decades to reclaim Christianity. Come, learn from their wisdom and let’s get to work.
