Disunity in Christ

with Dr. Christena Cleveland
Sunday School Lecture

September 20 | 10 a.m. | Livestream

Dr. Cleveland will introduce her book Disunity in Christ as she examines the natural forces which separate us and gives suggestions for how we may overcome those divides.

Evening Event

September 20 | 7 p.m. | Livestream

Dr. Cleveland will continue discussing divides within the community but focus on the different ways in which power comes into play. What role does power play, who holds power, how might it be used to divide or unite?

Christena Cleveland

Dr. Cleveland is a social psychologist, public theologian, and author whose work focuses on justice and renewal. In her book Disunity in Christ, Dr. Cleveland examines the forces which tend to separate us, and leads us to consider how we may work to overcome that which tries to divide. Even as Christians (especially as Christians) who are called to love one another, we have a lot to learn about the hard work of remaining united as one.
