Kelso Community Conversation on Race and Faith 2021 Videos
From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible proclaims justice and prosperity for the poor. Nevertheless, the Bible is often interpreted in ways that justify inaction in the face of poverty, state that poverty is eternal, and claim that if God wanted to end poverty, God would do so. During the 2021 Kelso Community Conversation on Race and Faith, the Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, director of the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice and co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, led the four-part Bible study "Difficult Texts: Confronting What the Bible Really Says About Poverty, Authority, and the Status Quo."
