Rev. Dr. Allan Aubrey Boesak, South African liberation theologian, to lecture and preach Easter Weekend at New Millennium Church
April 7, 2017, LITTLE ROCK—Rev. Dr. Allan Aubrey Boesak, one of the heroes of the anti-apartheid freedom struggle in South Africa and co-leader with Archbishop Desmond Tutu of the United Democratic Front (UDF)—the equivalent to the U.S. civil rights movement—will deliver a lecture at 3:30 PM on April 15 (Holy Saturday) and a sermon at 9 AM on April 16 (Resurrection Sunday/Easter) at New Millennium Church in the sanctuary of Lakeshore Drive Baptist Church, 21 Lakeshore Drive, in Little Rock.
Dr. Boesak is a humanitarian, social justice activist, author of numerous books and scholarly articles, and is regarded throughout the world as a leading authority on liberation theology. Since June 2013, he has served as the Desmond Tutu Chair of Peace, Global Justice, and Reconciliation Studies by joint appointment at Christian Theological Seminary and Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana. His authoritative insights concerning the intersection of faith, public policy, justice and peace are demonstrated by his three most recent books: Kairos, Crisis, and Global Apartheid: The Challenge to Prophetic Witness (2015), Dare We Speak of Hope: Searching for a Language of Life in Faith and Politics (2014), and Radical Reconciliation: Beyond Political Pietism and Christian Quietism, co-authored with Curtiss Paul DeYoung, (2012).
On Holy Saturday, Dr. Boesak will deliver a lecture titled Why We Cry, How We Cry, Who Can Cry: Justice, Lament, and Hope in Distressing Times. On Resurrection Sunday/Easter, Dr. Boesak’s sermon during New Millennium’s worship service will be titled Something’s The Matter With Thomas.
