(Past)Foundation Fundamentals Book Group: Verna Dozier’s The Dream of God

Through Virginia Seminary’s Center for Lifelong Learning:  Verna Dozier’s The Dream of God, first published in 1991, has become a classic work of prophetic writing: calling the institutional church to reclaim its true calling as the place where the people of God, the laity or laos, are empowered and nurtured to participate in building the divine vision of a beloved community where justice and mutual compassion prevail.   This 5-week book study will revisit this important work, to explore how it lands with followers of Jesus and others in our own time.  Register here
