Fear of the Other We live in a culture of prejudice and exclusion but God commands us to love and embrace those who are considered “other”. Bishop Will Willamon has written a book to help us learn how to recognize and think differently about our fear of those we consider “other.” Join us as we explore a distinctively Christian way to engage the “outsider” and “stranger.” The study will run from January 20 – February 24 and will meet from 4:00 – 5:00 pm. at First UMC, Des Moines. The book cost is $12.00. You must register to attend.
