About the Event


Sundays, December 5, 12, and 19 from 10:20-11:05 a.m., in the Shaffer Room

This class will examine the parallels and perils of these two tenets through the works of prolific American writer, August Wilson. Wilson's Fences and Jitney, will be the related texts that guide participants through an interactive and engaging discussion and performance on the power of forgiveness and the the ability to keep the faith when wronged or if you have ought against your brother. 

(This class will include live actors playing scenes from the plays Fences and Jitney.)

"Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has grievance against anyone."—Colossians 3:13

"Do not judge and you will not be judged."—Matthew 7:1
