In honor of Black History Month, join Pastor Ashley for a discussion of Bryan Stevenson’s Just Mercy.
A New York Times bestseller, Just Mercy tells the true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice. Named one of the best books of the year by The Washington Post, and winner of the Carnegie Medal of Excellence in Nonfiction, Just Mercy chronicles Equal Justice Initiative founder Bryan Stevenson’s experiences as a young lawyer. In particular, it focuses on the case of Walter McMillian, a man on death row for a murder he insisted he didn’t commit. Join us as we, through this book, explore the complex histories of racial and criminal justice in America and consider how we can be a part of creating a better future.
Books available for pick up in the church office.
