Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Mpho, authored this book that offers a generous contribution to the theological/anthropological foundation of Imago Dei – humanity as created in the image of God. This conviction is one that affirms the ecclesiological priorities of welcome and belonging, while also giving rise to concepts of discipleship and repentance (if we are made of God, made for goodness, then our faithfulness is to lead us to honor – and, at times, return to – who we are). Further, the Tutus share a theology that elevates an image of a God of Freedom – who creates us in the divine image with the eternal hope that we may discover and live into the greatest gift of all, Love. This offers a faithful response to the questions we often hear and ask, such as:
Where is God when we suffer?
Where is God when we fail?
Why does God let us sin?
If you are looking for a summer read; if you are looking for a conversation group to discuss good theology and engage in good questions; if you are looking for a good spot to take in the summer evenings in Hiram, consider this study!
Tuesday evenings in June, beginning June 5th, from 6:30-8pm at the Hiram Inn. Bring a copy of the book (available for purchase and at the library). Bring a few dollars for a beverage of your choice to support our new neighbors at the Inn. Bring a friend!
I hope to see you there.
