Feb. 24 “A Political Reading of the Life of Jesus,” with George Baldwin

Sunday, Feb. 24, 2 p.m., at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 420 Melrose, Santa Cruz

George Baldwin is author of “A Political Reading of the Life of Jesus.” Baldwin was a local pastor for twelve years and a seminary professor for fourteen years. He felt called to live in voluntary poverty and lived in Nicaragua from 1984 to 1996.

Bill Moyers called George “…one of the memorable people I have met in my work and one for whom I have the utmost admiration.”

Baldwin says, “Don’t ask, what would Jesus Do? Read what Jesus did Do!” Baldwin examines Jesus as the leader of a political insurrection, in relation to Christology, the Trinity, theories of atonement, love of neighbor, and the role of the Church.

This event is part of a series, “Jesus and Justice: Journeying Towards Repentance and Reconciliation” organized by local churches, Quaker Meeting, and RCNV.
