    EXECUTING GRACE: HOW THE DEATH PENALTY KILLED JESUS AND WHY IT’S KILLING US

    Monday, January 8

    Shane Claiborne is a prominent speaker, activist, and best-selling author who worked with Mother Teresa in Calcutta and founded The Simple Way, a faith community in inner-city Philadelphia that has helped birth and connect radical faith communities around the world.  He heads up Red Letter Christians, a movement of folks who are committed to living “as if Jesus meant the things he said.” Shane is a champion for grace, which has led him to jail advocating for the homeless, and to places like Iraq and Afghanistan to stand against war. And now grace fuels his passion to end the death penalty.

    This lecture will be broadcast live in the Black Box and Main Stage from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Admission is free. For those who would like a lunch ($5), please call 231.924.8885 to reserve one at least 24 hours in advance of the lecture you would like to attend.
