Might from the Margins

GraceCity, for the next ten weeks beginning April 18, 2021, we’ll be preaching from the key biblical texts highlighting the themes of Denis R. Edwards 2020 groundbreaking book, Might from the Margins: the Gospels power to Turn the Tables on Injustice (Denis R. Edwards, Herald Press, 2020).

God has empowered marginalized Christians to transform the church. The power of the gospel is often most visible among those who have been the least respected, including racial or ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, women, and people who have been displaced from their homeland. Yet in many faith communities, these are the same people whose leadership gifts are least likely to be recognized. But the power of the gospel comes from God, not from other humans. This book is a passionate affirmation of the power already present among marginalized Christians and a call to recognize and embrace this power for the sake of helping the church become more like Christ. Marginalized Christians are already changing the face of the church. Will we embrace their power to change the church’s heart?
