An Evening with Shane Claiborne and Friends @ Ashland First United Methodist Church | Ashland | Ohio | United States

Shane Claiborne is a prominent speaker, activist, and best-selling author. Shane worked with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, and founded The Simple Way in Philadelphia. He heads up Red Letter Christians, a movement of folks who are committed to living “as if Jesus meant the things he said.” Shane is a champion for grace which has led him to jail advocating for the homeless, and to places like Iraq and Afghanistan to stand against war. And now grace fuels his passion to end the death penalty.

Claiborne travels extensively, both nationally and internationally, speaking about peacemaking, social justice, and Jesus. His books include Jesus for President, Red Letter Revolution, Common Prayer, and The Irresistible Revolution. His books have been translated into more than a dozen languages.

His latest book is Executing Grace: How the Death Penalty Killed Jesus and Why It’s Killing Us. Copies of the book will be available at the event.

Speakers will include:
Shane Claiborne
Rev. Jack Sullivan Jr., whose sister’s murder has never been solved
Kwame Ajamu, who was exonerated in 2014 after he and his co-defendants spent decades in prison after being sent to death row for a crime they did not commit
