Join members of the Presbytery REMJN as we explore the three aspects of the Matthew 25 Initiative (Race, Poverty and Church Revitalization) through the Lens of Harper Lee’s Classic Novel, To Kill A Mockingbird.
Starting Wednesday September 7th journey back to Maycomb, Alabama with your friends from the Presbytery. We will revisit Atticus, Miss Maudie, Scout, Calpurnia and other beloved characters as we reflect on God’s work in our world, in scripture, in literature, and in our lives.
Each week a member of the REMJN will focus on a short section of the book as we reflect on its importance and influence in one of the three focuses of Matthew 25 tying it to scripture.
Wednesdays, Noon – 1:00pm from September 7th thru October 12th. Meet us on Zoom or in person at the Presbytery office (217 Wyoming Avenue, Wyoming, OH 45215). Registration Strongly Encouraged. Please do so below.
