Just Mercy

Sundays in February

How are we called to be channels of God’s mercy in an all-too-often-unjust world? “Just Mercy,” our February sermon series, will engage us in conversations that spark redemption. We will come face to face with some of the most pressing challenges of the day, learn to tell the truth about our fears and shortcomings, and respond in meaningful ways together. This 4-part series is anchored in scripture from the Revised Common Lectionary.

All are invited to read Bryan Stevenson’s compelling book of stories, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption. Our series is loosely based on principles from the book. Stevenson is a man of deep faith and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, out of Montgomery, AL. He works for the exoneration of wrongly convicted persons of color, minor children who have been sentenced as adults, and others who have been mistreated by the criminal justice system.
