Jesus and the Disinherited: Taking the Inward Journey to Liberation

Therese Taylor-Stinson

Sat 4 PM | Landing
Through the work of Howard Thurman’s book by the same name, written 41 years ago, we will explore how his words, though dated in terms of language and history, still ring true in the lives of the disinherited of the 21st century. Using Thurman’s broad categories of inward reflection, fear, deception, hate, and love, we will reflect on current events and the lives of the disinherited in present circumstances, making our own inward journey to overcome dominance and oppression. Please bring a journal to write your reflections.
