Practicing Anti-capitalism in the Church: Political Education, Debt Liberation, and Liturgy
Let's get practical. How do we practice anti-capitalism or Marxist politics in our churches? Kevin Georgas and Joe Stapleton from Jubilee Baptist Church in North Carolina, as profiled in Buzzfeed, will share about their debt liberation circles, "financial literacy classes" (aka reading Marx's Capital), and how Jubilee orients their liturgy and sermons on an anti-capitalist framework. Sarah Ngu from Forefront NYC church in Brooklyn, as profiled in The New York Times, will also share their insights on how to discuss socialist, leftist ideas from the pulpit within a largely liberal, nondenominational congregation as well as lessons learned from starting a Christian leftists small group, modeled after Jubilee's, which covers perhaps the most taboo topics in church: Marxism, sex work, and prison abolition.
