Join First Congregational Church for our annual James W. White Lecture Series, with this year's guest, Rev. Dr. Miguel De La Torre.
As Professor of Social Ethics and Latinx Studies at Iliff School of Theology, De La Torre works at the intersection of faith, academia, and activism. He will be exploring faith-based responses to unending injustices by embracing the reality of hopelessness. The theme for the weekend is "Embracing Hopelessness: Shaking Up the Powers that Be."
