When the Gospel and Culture Collide—Reflections from the Book of Ruth
June 8 | 7:00PM | Contact: GC Office
Guest Speaker: Carolyn Custis James (renowned author, blogger, speaker, theologian).
Every generation faces new issues, changes, and crises that leave us wondering if the Bible is still relevant in today’s world. Who would guess the ancient book of Ruth is up to the challenge? This brief, often misunderstood story engages refugees, immigration, wealth, poverty and welfare, racism, sexism, power and privilege, sexual assault, human rights, and speaks into our lives with the bracing gospel message we need.
