“Anytime we rejoice in death, we disgrace the cross.”

Author and advocate Shane Claiborne comes to Springfield to talk about his book EXECUTING GRACE: HOW THE DEATH PENALTY KILLED JESUS AND WHY IT’S KILLING US.
Once a supporter of the death penalty, Shane looked deep into issues of justice, retribution, and redemption and came to believe in abolition.

Look for our Springfield events with Shane during the weekend November 18 and 19. These events are FREE and open to the public!
