CANTERBURY THIS WEEK

LibTheology.pptx (1)From 6:30-7 pm, we will have some time to hang out with Matt, and then we will get going at 7 pm, delving deep into Liberation Theology.  Before he was ordained, Matt was an archaeologist for 20 years in Bolivia, Peru, and the American West.  During his time in Latin America, he became interested in the grassroots waves and movements of liberation theologies, which changed the way he thought about salvation.  Join us as we explore how liberation theology might change us and our communities today.
