  • Fall Faith Formation Series: Interrupting Silence

    • Silence is a complex matter. It can refer to awe before unutterable holiness, but it can also refer to the coercion where some voices are silenced in the interest of control by the dominant voices. It is the latter silence that Walter Brueggemann explores, in his book Interrupting Silence, urging us to speak up in situations of injustice. For our fall series, we’ll look at instances where silence is harmful, deadly even, and examine our calling as followers of Jesus to speak up---to break the silence. Learn more here.
