Sinclair Lewis. A great writer by any measure, and a courageous one. His 1947 book "Kingsblood Royal" is about a middle class white man who, upon researching his family history, learns he is descended from an African American. When he reveals this, he is thrown into the web of racism. Gutsy story to be writing in 1947. Bravo, Mr. Lewis.
Speaker Series Kathryn Stockett is author of “The Help,” the New York Times best seller. Made into a film, the book is about a young white woman, Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan, and her relationship with two black maids during Civil Rights Era. Phelan is a journalist who decides to write a controversial book from the point of view of the maids (known as the Help), exposing the racism they are faced with as they work for white families.
Sometimes it can be hard to see the worth of building our lives and ministry at home when our days feel overwhelming and isolating. If you are in that place, questioning the labor you pour into each day, come and be reminded of the purpose and intention God has given you- after all, "your greatest contribution to the Kingdom of God, might not be something you do, but someone you raise."
