A Prophet’s Struggle with God

Wed. February 15-22, 6:30-7:30pm. Led by Patrick Messer.

The story of Jonah that often gets told in children’s Bibles ends with a freshly regurgiteated prophet preaching in Nineveh. Jonah finally does what he is supposed to, the people of Nineveh turn to God, and the everything ends happily ever after. But the book of Jonah doesn’t end that way. The rest of the story is one in which this prophet struggles to accept the mind-shattering love and inclusivity of God.

The stor of Paul’s ministry could have played out very differently. Paul could have easily ridden off into the sunset preaching the gospel in Spain and beyond just like he wanted.

Exploitation of the Poor

Exploitation of the Poor

Thursday, January 26, 7:00pm, Mayflower Hall. Sponsored by the Peace & Justice Team.

Lea Wroblewski, manager of the Access to Justice Clinic at Legal Aid of Nebraska, will be speaking on a wide range of topics concerning exploitation of the poor. Her 20 years of experience have well-equipped Ms. Wroblewski to talk about areas of exploitation, often systemic of low income Nebraskans. This exploitation is often exacerbated by the absence of legal counsel. She will conclude with an interactive conversation about how we as a community can respond to issues of exploitation. (Legal Aid provides free civil legal services to low income Nebraskans who cannot afford an attorney.)
