‘Occupy the Bible’ comes to Riverside Church

Community members are invited to join in the study and exploration of a new, challenging and provocative book: “Occupy the Bible: What Jesus Really Said (and did) about Money and Power.”

The series will take place in Hood River at Riverside Community Church on Sunday mornings from 9-10:15 a.m., beginning March 3.

The book, written by Rev. Dr. Susan Thistlethwaite, provides an eye-opening exploration of many of the foundational Christian scriptures. It also serves as a how-to guide for those who seek to follow in the ways of Jesus in times of growing poverty and economic inequality.
