Reconciliation in the context of Domination | August 25th | Rose Madrid-Swetman

The Gospel of Jesus talks about Reconciliation and Forgiveness. We are all called to love our enemies and bring about peace. However, we have inherited much of these principles within a tradition that assumes a plain field and denies oppression.
What happens when we name and face the contexts of domination? How does the gospel empower the disempowered to forgive and reconcile when justice must be made?

Seattle Pastor Rose Madrid-Swetman will lead us in a conversation titled "Living the gospel of peace in within systems of domination. Whether we are up against theological or systemic injustice, how do we step into the Story that God has invited us to live out?

Join us this Thursday August 25th, 8pm at In The Red in Phinney--->back room.

p.s. In the Red's manager has been amazingly gracious to host us for free every month. Please plan on bringing a suggested donation of $5 to buy appetizers to share. You are on your own with the wine :)
