Dear Church, a new book study, begins Sunday October 27, to discuss Lenny Duncan’s Dear Church: A Love Letter from a Black Preacher to the Whitest Denomination in the US. Duncan, formerly incarcerated, is now a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Dear Church offers a bold new vision for the future and rejects the narrative of church decline and calls everyone – leaders and laity alike – to the front lines of the church’s renewal through racial equality and justice. Join Bob Barkhau as he facilitates table talk book discussion in Creighton Hall Sundays, October 27 to November 24. Books are available in the lobby and on Amazon. Please read chapters 1-3 for week 1, October 27.
