Presenting: Tearing Down the Walls

Tickets: $10 per person

From picket fences and gated neighborhoods to office cubicles and prison cells, we live in a world of walls.  We can end up lonely people ... stuck in the ghettos of poverty and the ghettos of affluence.  But God is all about tearing down walls.  We are not alone.  Stories of compassion and reconciliation invite us into the promise that the gates will not prevail.  Poverty and injustice become personal, as we gain the eyes to see the suffering around us.  The Gospel comforts the afflicted and afflicts the comfortable ... but is good new to all of us.

Biography:  Shane Claiborne is a prominent speaker, activist, and best-selling author.  Shane worked with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, and founded The Simple Way in Philadelphia.  He heads up Red Letter Christians, a movement of folks who are committed to living "as if Jesus meant the things he said."  Shane is a champion for grace which has led him to advocate for the homeless, and to places like Iraq and Afghanistan to stand against war.  And now grace fuels his passion to end the death penalty.  His work has appeared in Esquire, SPIN, Christianity Today, and The Wall Street Journal, and he has been on everything from Fox News and Al Jazeera to CNN and NPR.  he has given academic lectures at Harvard, Princeton, Liberty, Duke, and Notre Dame.
