Who was Jesus and who would he identify with today? What does he say to encourage us in the ongoing struggle for justice in our world? Do his teachings apply to the fear, deception, and hate we experience today? Howard Thurman, the great spiritual guide of the civil rights movement, answers these questions in his classic little book, Jesus and the Disinherited. Martin Luther King Jr. studied it during the Montgomery bus boycott and drew much from it. We can learn so much from Thurman today.
As we journey in faith through this Lenten season, let Howard Thurman be your guide. He will help us see Jesus more clearly and follow him more closely. Pick up Jesus and the Disinherited wherever you buy books, and we will discuss each short chapter during Lent in small groups.
