In response to the invitation of our Presiding Bishop Michael Curry to commit ourselves as Episcopalians to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice, the diocese of Milwaukee is initiating a diocesan-wide book study and discussion of the book Just Mercy, by Bryan Stevenson.
Just Mercy is a true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us and a call to fix our broken justice system written by the founder of the Equal Justice Institute (EJI) in Montgomery, Alabama. The EJI is a legal practice dedicated to defending the most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system.
We will gather over coffee for a 3 part discussion about how we bring our faith to the issues raised by Stevenson, as well as how the issues raised impact our faith.
The dates we will meet are as follows:
Sunday, September 24th @ 10:00 am
Sunday, October 1st @ 10:00 am
Sunday, October 15th @ 10:00 am
We hope to see you there!
