If you don’t believe that evil exists, this adult Lenten class might change your mind. This six-week study will be based on Father Richard Rohr’s book What Do We Do with Evil?: The World, the Flesh, and the Devil. Father Rohr is a Franciscan priest and the founding director of the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This small volume addresses three traditional sources of evil. Rohr describes how Christianity has focused almost exclusively on the individual, flesh level, while the world and the devil got off scot-free for most of Christian history. Evil is subtle and usually well-disguised.
