“There is no religious left and religious right. There is only a moral center. The scripture is very clear about where you have to be, to be in the moral center – you have to be on the side of the poor, the working, the sick, and the immigrant.” -The Rev. Dr. William Barber II
The Rev. Dr. William Barber is one of the most prominent advocates for poor people in this country. Publicly preaching on the plight of low-income people, Rev. Barber refuses to engage in diversionary fights–he sticks to the Gospel. The philosopher Cornel West called him “the closest person we have to a Martin Luther King Jr.” With Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and Rev. Dr. William Barber, two of the best preachers in a generation joining us, sharing the Good News of Christ has never been easier. Invite your friends, family, and neighbors to join you for this free, joy-filled event.
