Pr. Peter and Intern Pr. Maggie invite you to join them in reading and discussing Pr. Lenny's book, Dear Church. Part manifesto, part confession, and all love letter, Dear Church offers a vision for the future of the ELCA and the broader mainline Christian community of faith. Dear Church 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.
It's a challenging read. Pr. Peter does not expect that you'll be comfortable with all of what Pr. Duncan writes. He and Intern Maggie do think you will see the whiteness of our church in a new way.
