In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., Day in January and in anticipation of Black History Month in February, James Calvin Davis will be leading a three-part study of theologian James Cone’s book, The Cross and the Lynching Tree (Orbis Books, 2013).
In this book, Cone considers the two most emotionally charged symbols in African-American Christianity, using history, literature, and the legacy of MLK to understand their interconnections.
This will be a book study, so participants should get a copy of the book and commit to reading the chapters as we cover them (approximately 30 pages a week). For the first meeting, please read the introduction and the first chapter. We will meet in Fellowship Hall at 7:30pm on the following Mondays: January 23 and 30, February 6.
Hope to see you there!
