Join us as Dr. Eric Watkins leads us in a 4-part evening class, Social Justice and the Church in Reformed Perspective: A Guide for Church Members. This evening class will draw from the week-long course Dr. Watkins taught on the subject at Mid-America in January 2021 but will be accessible for non-seminary students. A recommended reading list will be given to participants. The class should be lively, interactive, and practical. Please consider inviting members of your congregations, including teenagers and college students. It would certainly be of benefit to them, as the class will seek not only to address issues from a biblically and theologically reformed perspective, but it will also discuss practical ways in which the church can “do justice, love mercy and walking humbly with our God” together.
The class will begin at 7:30 p.m. on four Thursday nights (February 10, March 3, March 17, and April 21). The class will meet for 45 minutes, followed by a 15-minute break and then another 45 minutes and then a time of Question and Answer. The topics covered in the course will be as follows:
February 10: The Bible and Social Justice
March 3: A History of Social Justice and the Church
March 17: Critical Race Theory and the Church
April 21: Doing Justice and Loving Mercy—Practical Suggestions
