Genocide, Rwanda and the End of the Superstition Called Progress

God_Sleeps_RwandaSunday, June 26th, The Riverside Book Club hosts Dr. Joseph Sebarenzi as he talks with us about his acclaimed memoir God Sleeps in Rwanda. Dr. Sebarenzi experienced the tragedy of the Rwandan genocide and then rose to become the third most powerful man his country while pushing for greater democracy. Joseph will read excerpts from his book as well as take questions.  Join us in the Foster Room next Sunday after worship, approximately 11:15 a.m.

I will be preaching a sermon entitled, A Wreck of A World, in which I attempt to speak critically and theologically about evil and what this says not only about God but also about the last great superstition, as Christopher Lasch, referred to it, progress.  At Riverside, we are accustomed to using both our minds and our hearts in our struggle to understand God and ourselves.  We pose deep questions knowing that shallow questions only lead to shallow answers.
