Living the Questions Class: “Countering Pharaoh’s Production Consumption Society Today”

“Countering Pharaoh’s Production-Consumption Society Today” confronts participants with the comparison of  the enslavement of the Hebrew people in Egypt to the enslavement of Americans struggling with the unending demands of the consumer society that defines us. A tour-de-force with preacher-professor-prophet Walter Brueggemann, “Countering Pharaoh” brings insights to the story of the Exodus that transforms its well-worn story elements into a demanding call on the lives of 21st century people of faith.

 ”It is a journey from slavery to covenant that we keep making over and over again… [because] Pharaoh has immense power always to draw us back into slavery.” - Walter Brueggemann

Thursdays, November 29th, December 6th, 13th, and 20th at 6:30 pm
