Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 2219 Washington Avenue, will host the March 13 service. Milwaukee native Arno Michaels III, former white supremacist and author of My Life After Hate, will share his compelling story.
A former racist skinhead examines aspects of his past: Where did the hate begin? How did a teenaged alcoholic become a central figure in the white power movement of the late 80’s and early 90’s? What happened to bring about his drastic change of mind and heart? With a collection of reflective essays, disturbing flashbacks, and an interview, My Life After Hate scrubs scabs off the festering wound of racism, then soothes with the essential wisdom of forgiveness and compassion.
There will be a program for children at 5:00. Supper will be served in Fellowship Hall at 6:00. Mr. Michaels’s presentation will be part of the 7:00 worship service in the sanctuary.
