Cloud of Witnesses: Stories from Saints-in-Process

Highland’s sanctuary is filled with saints—the ones in the stained-glass windows who have completed the race and the ones in the pews who are still in process. When we assume saints to be perfect people, we miss the truth they have to share. Saints are the ones who wonder if God is up to something and step out in humility and boldness to share their glimpses of the divine. Story-telling by these “Saints-in-Process” makes God visible for the church. Join us in the sanctuary for another Cloud of Witnesses evening as Bob Cunningham facilitates a conversation with Bojangles Blanchard, Noah Cooksey, and Janet Tharpe, as they share their faith journey.

 

December 4, January 22, and January 29

The Church and Reparations

On December 4 and January 22, Dr. Lewis Brogdon will be teaching us about some of the intersections between Church, Scripture, American History, privilege, and reparations. Dr. Brogdon (formerly a professor at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary) is currently the Chair of Religious Studies at Simmons College of Kentucky and teaches Black Church Studies at Baptist Seminary of Kentucky.

On January 29, Highland’s Anti-Racism Ministry Team will facilitate a time to process what we have learned on December 4 and January 22, while looking at different ways that members of Highland Baptist Church might respond to the issue of reparations.
