The Presbyterian Church (USA) is encouraging congregations to join a movement to become a “Matthew 25 Church.” Matthew 25 churches focus on three goals: to build congregational vitality, dismantle structural racism, and eradicate systemic poverty. Rev. Garbison is a Presbyterian minister who is a leader of Cherith Brook, an intentional community that lives together sharing table fellowship, economic resources, labor, study, prayers and worship. The community follows the vision of Dorothy Day, founder of the Catholic Worker Movement. Through her ministry of meeting “Christ on the margins,” Day sought to help create a more just society for all people. This class will explore her concepts of The Mystical Body, The Little Way, and Love in Action among others. Child care is available. Must register separately for child care via "Child care for Evening Christian Life Classes."
