George E. Thompson, Waynesville resident and former pastor of First United Methodist Church in Waynesville, will discuss his new book, God is Not Fair, Thank God!—Biblical Paradox in the A Life and Worship of the Parish. Thompson asserts that when the church grasps for power and control, avoids compassionate and costly ministries among the poor and powerless, and renders primary focus upon gaining heavenly rewards; it rejects its Christ-centered mission.
