“Rethinking Power: Community Organizing in the Way of Jesus” – Melissa Florer-Bixler

Visiting Pastor, Melissa Florer-Bixler, encourages us to “rethink power” in the ways of Jesus. She draws from experience with community organizing and inspiration for how Jesus tells us to think differently about power rather than simply embracing “powerlessness” as a Christian commitment.

Melissa Florer-Bixler was on campus for EMU’s visiting pastor program. Melissa is a member of Chapel Hill Mennonite Fellowship (NC) and is on the pastoral staff of Duke Memorial United Methodist Church in Durham, NC.
