January 13: “The New Jim Crow, Still” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons
January 13 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm
This year’s auction sermon topic, purchased by Butch Murphy, lifts up the work of the ancient Roman poet Lucretius, presenting Epicurean philosophy to Roman intellectuals in the first century BCE. This text, lost for a time after the fall of Rome, describes the elements of a good life before the rise of Christianity, and offers a vision for our own time, including the claim that the chief enemy of pleasure is not pain, but delusion. How might these ideas inform our own lives?
CLF Prison Ministry is the recipient of the January 2019.
