Building Communities of Resistance


“If a church never gets into conflict with the ruling powers it should question whether it’s a church of Jesus Christ.” Jon Sobrino

We live in a time where the message of Jesus and the agenda of the powerful are in conflict, where the hidden systems of domination are being revealed, where the need for a movement of justice and a people of resistance is ever more clear.

Here at Brentwood, we are partnering with Homebrewed Christianity and activist-theologian Robyn Henderson-Espinoza for a four week series (Wednesdays in September at 6:30 p.m.) on Building Communities of Resistance.

  • September 5: Resisting Nationalism with Dietrich Bonhoeffer
  • September 12: Resisting Patriarchy with Rosemary Radford Ruether
  • September 19: Resisting Racism with James Cone
  • September 26: Resisting Empire with Jon Sobrino

This is free and open to the public. We’ll meet upstairs at Brentwood, in Room 10. The series will be convened and facilitated by Phil Snider, in partnership with Tripp Fuller and Robyn Henderson-Espinoza.
