Women's Study - Fear of the Other

In this no non-sense book, reliable spiritual guide, Will Willimon, invites readers to consider the gospel command to love (and not merely tolerate) those considered to be “Other” or outside mainstream Christian culture. Rooted in the faith of Israel and the Christian story and vision, Willimon brings a Wesleyan perspective to bear on what may be the hardest thing for people of faith to do: keeping and loving the "Other" as they are - without any need for them to become like us.  Sessions are being held in the church library (2nd floor) from 7:00-8:30pm on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, May 17
  • Wednesay, May 24
  • Thursday, June 1
  • Thursday, June 8
  • Thursday, June 15
