Thank you to all who participated in this discussion. Feel free to join in weekly discussion groups on racial justice on Monday evenings via Zoom or outside on the church grounds on Wednesdays (please bring your own chair and mask).
Please join us for for an important discussion about the film Just Mercy, which highlights the early work of Bryan Stevenson and the Equal Justice Initiative. We’ll have a Zoom gathering Monday, June 29, at 7:15 p.m. Contact the church office for the Zoom link or find it in our Wednesday email.
We highly encourage the congregation to watch the film (it is available for free in the month of June on many streaming platforms) that sheds light on systemic racism and injustice in the criminal justice system.
Michael B. Jordan gives a powerful performance as real-life defense attorney Bryan Stevenson, who after graduating from Harvard travels to Alabama in hopes to help poor people who can’t afford legal representation. He then meets Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx), a wrongly condemned death row prisoner.
