Lenten Reading Group: The Third Reconstruction

Lenten Reading Group,
Community United Church of Christ
814 Dixie Trial, Raleigh NC 27607    Bradow Room
Three Wednesdays:  February 24, March 2 and March 9, 12:00 – 1:30 p.m.
If this is your lunch hour, bring a bag lunch. Drinks will be provided.

We plan to read The Third Reconstruction: Moral Mondays, Fusion Politics, and the Rise of a New Justice Movement by The Rev. William J. Barber, II (with Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove).

Many of us plan to go (CUCC plans) to the HKon J Moral March on Saturday, February 13, 2016. We expect to be encouraged to believe that things can change for the better!

The book presents Rev. Barber’s view that it is time for the pendulum of history to swing back to a more just society in the United States.  Let’s read the book together, discuss his ideas, and plan to act!

If you sign up for the group by February 15, we at CUCC will make a group book  order at Quail Ridge Books. Please sign up at  Or you can buy your own book. It will be good to have started reading before the first meeting February 24, but you are welcome even if you haven’t started reading. Please come and join the conversation.

The details of the book are:
The Reverend Dr. William J. Barber II, The Third Reconstruction. Moral Mondays, Fusion Politics, and the Rise of a New Justice Movement. Boston: The Beacon Press, 2016.

Sponsored by the CUCC Economic Justice Task Force and the Saturday Morning Book Group.
