January 20 “The Man on the Gravestone” Rev. Michael
One day, as he was doing research at a cemetery in Hancock, Rev. Michael found a gravestone that sketched out the life of a most remarkable man, whose 100-year life was shaped by the wicked practice of slavery. Come hear his story, as we reflect upon the legacy of slavery and the impact of institutional racism on our society and faith tradition in 2019.

-Words and deeds of prophetic people which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;
-Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;
-Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;
