Encountering the Easter Story through Mark’s Gospel and Stephen King’s early writing, our Tuesday night learning is via Zoom only and features discussion-based small groups.
On Tuesday, 3/22 at 7 pm, please join us as we dig in to part 2b of our Lenten Forum Series: A Resurrection Beyond.
Readings from “Blood Sport,” Book One of Carrie, will prompt small-group discussions of our personal histories “possessing” us. In this context we will address the vulgarities of scripture and King’s stories, including their misogyny, racism, and anti-LGBTQIA+ rhetoric. We will ask: Is Carrie White a villain or a victim? Do these writings reflect the judgments of their time, or do they actively perpetuate their characters’ bigotries? How are we responsible for the circumstances and ideas that we do not choose, but that choose us?
