Director of the LCC Florence Center, Dr. Russ Pierson will lead the worship service. Pierson’s topic is From the Margins to the Middle: Making Conversation with the Other.

Pierson says, “In these days when we can all pick and choose the media we consume, it is far too easy to hide in our own little silos, surrounded by an echo chamber that encourages us to lob grenades of vitriol at one another. How can we move past the memes and stereotypes of the Other to really change hearts and minds–including our own? We’ll consider a vignette from the life of Jesus as shared from the perspective of an anguished evangelical who has stopped to listen and learn.”
