Liberation Theology - The Good News of Liberation With Kevin Barron

Liberation Theology, regardless of the particular emphasis, asserts that God takes the side of the oppressed and seeks their liberation from bondage.  Sacred scripture reflects this position through various narratives found in both the Old Testament and the New Testament.  During our hour together we will take a look at a few of these narratives of liberation and discuss what this means for us as people of faith.  We will discuss how might Liberation Theology may shape our understanding of sacred scripture

Aimee Confer is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
