Israel & The Politics of Faith

Day of Discovery

A Christmas journey unlike any you have ever taken before—the first in a series of special holiday presentations with soloist Wintley Phipps, author and professor Dr. Allen Callahan, and actress Gwendolyn Briley-Strand as Harriet Tubman in the dramatic presentation, A Christmas Journey to Freedom.

The year is 1854, a time when America struggled deeply with the issues of slavery. Harriet Tubman, known as “Moses”—a guide to freedom for slaves— learns of a dear friend in trouble.
