Wednesday Lenten Series: Building the Beloved Community
Wednesdays in March
Supper: 6 p.m. | Program: 6:45 p.m.

Our goal is to create a beloved community, and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as
well as a quantitative
change in our lives. – Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Lent is a good time to think about justice in general and racial justice specifically. As I recently quoted in a sermon, “Three
types of justice include (1) commutative justice, which focuses on relationships between members of the community;
(2) distributive justice, which functions to ensure the equitable distribution of goods, the benefits and burdens of a
community; and (3) social justice which affects the social order necessary for distributive justice.” Our intention is to gather
humbly with God and one another to learn, listen, discuss, engage, and wrestle with the call to honor the full humanity
of every person. We will touch on the intersectionality of this work. – Julia Carlson
