Naming, Unmasking & Engaging The Powers says
This series will focus on the spiritual structurality of power – biblically named as the “principalities.” We undertake the course in Lent because from the beginning (Jesus’ temptation to the giant triplets in the wilderness) to the end (confrontation with, execution by, and dethronement of the powers-that-be), the season is concerned with the “rulers and authorities,” the “principalities and powers.”

We will meet ALL the Mondays of Lent* (6:30pm to 8:30pm at St. Peter’s Episcopal – Michigan and Trumbull): 2/22, 2/29, 3/5, 3/14, 3/21.

*with the exception of the First Monday (2/15) - during which we will forego gathering at St. Peter's in order to attend MCHR's event. We invite you to join us in kicking off our series by attending this with us:

Topics to be covered include: creation liturgies – legitimating or subversive? white supremacy as a principality; urban architecture of our hearts; the Constantinian (imperial) accommodation of the church; idols of the global economy; the powers and pastoral care; the non-violent armor of powerly combat; Jesus and direct action; organizing spiritually for movement; emergency management as a power; powers exposed in the cross, dethroned in resurrection.
