Upcoming Circle

Tuesday, October 12 at 1 PM

 JUST MERCY:  A story of Justice & Redemption, is a book written by a young, black lawyer, Bryan Stevenson, a graduate of the Harvard Law School. Bryan founded the “Equal Justice Initiative,” in Montgomery, Ala., a non-profit legal practice dedicated to defending the most desperate and in need trapped in the criminal justice system.

This is a true story about Walter McMillan, a young man sentenced to die for a murder he did not commit. The case transferred Bryan’s understanding of mercy & justice forever. Who else to review this powerful & deeply moving book than our own Rev. Mitchell Moore, one of our passionate & gifted associate ministers! Join us Tuesday, October 12 at 1 PM for a social followed at 1:30 PM in the McCullough Room for the presentation of this outstanding book. Men & women of all faiths are welcome.
