Exodus and Revolution (Registration)

"Wherever people know the Bible, and experience oppression, the Exodus has sustained their spirits and (sometimes) inspired their resistance," teaches Professor Michael Walzer in his magnificent book, Exodus and Revolution

Puritans in 17th-century England, black Baptists in the United States in the 1960s, Roman Catholic revolutionaries in Latin America, have all found -- and continue to find -- empowerment in the Exodus story as they engage the political structures of their day.

Join us for an exploration of the Exodus story, what it has meant through history and what it might mean for us today. 

We'll be learning from different clergy and meeting in different houses of worship; we'll be meeting on Thursdays from 7:30-9:00 PM as follows:

  • Feb 15 - Introduction at Beacon Hebrew Alliance (331 Verplanck Avenue) with Rabbi Brent Spodek
  • Feb 22 - Chapter 1 at the Salvation Army (372 Main Street) with Lieutenant Leilani Alarcón
  • March 1 - Chapter 2 at Springfield Baptist Church (8 Mattie Cooper Square) with Pastor Edward Benson of the New Vision Church of Deliverance.
  • March 8 - Chapter 3 at Salem Tabernacle (7 Delevan Avenue) with Pastor Bill Dandreano 
  • March 15 - Chapter 4 at First Presbyterian Church, (50 Liberty Street) with Pastor Ben Larson Wolbrink.
  • March 22 - Conclusion at Beacon Hebrew Alliance (331 Verplanck Avneue) with Rev. Emily McNeill, Executive Director of the NYS Labor Religion Coalition and co-chair of the NYS Poor People's Campaign.

Please register below; nobody will be turned away for financial reasons.

All proceeds from this class will go to support the work of Repairers of the Breach, one of the national organizers of the New Poor People's Campaign, an effort to pick up the work Reverend Martin Luther King was doing when he was assasinated, and challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation and the nation’s distorted morality.
