This three-week series will be based on a short video interview with Chris Hedges, author of the book, “Wages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative to Revolt.” Chris Hedges is an American Pulitzer Prize winning author, journalist, anti-capitalist, and Presbyterian minister. His book analyzes revolutions from the 17th century onwards and how they have impacted societies. He argues that the United States is ripe for a revolution and, he states, this is for the best.

Participants are asked to preview the video on YouTube entitled, “Chris Hedges on What it Takes to be a Rebel in Modern Times.” The video is 16:35. It will be assumed that participants have viewed the video before the Lenten series.

All three sessions will focus on quotes from Chris Hedges and Scriptural passages. There will be open flow discussion or breakout groups depending on the number of participants. Participants may take part in any number of sessions.
