Read along with Rev. Mitra

Dear St. John’s,

As you may know, I have enrolled in a Doctorate in Ministry program at Lexington Theological Seminary. In August, I will be taking a class called Building Capacity for Transformative Ministries. I just ordered the books for that class and thought I would share the list with you. If you feel inspired, you are invited to read along with me.

Faith-Rooted Organizing: Mobilizing the Church in Service to the World by Rev. Alexia Salvatierra

Another Way: Living and Leading Change on Purpose by Stephen Lewis

Dear White Christians: For Those Still Longing for Racial Reconciliation (Prophetic Christianity Series (PC)) by Jennifer Harvey

Organizing Church: Grassroots Practices for Embodying Change in Your Congregation, Your Community, and Our World by Tim Conder

I would be happy to join anyone in conversation about one or more of these books come late August or early September.

Rev. Mitra
