About or Guest Preacher

The Rev. Terry J. Stokes (he/they) is an anarchist theologian living on Munsee Lenape land in so-called Trenton, New Jersey. He holds degrees from Yale University and Princeton Theological Seminary and served in church ministry for several years before becoming a director of a youth development nonprofit. They are the author of Jesus and the Abolitionists: How Anarchist Christianity Empowers the People.

Here is information about the book

In Jesus and the Abolitionists, Stokes introduces readers to the ancient practice of anarchy and how it intersects with Christian beliefs and values. We see how beliefs about God, humanity, divine-human interaction, the Bible, and more can be illuminated and faithfully reformulated through an anarchist lens. Anarchist Christianity is a caring theology and practice of living, one based in our voluntary cooperation, the goodness of all people, and faith in God. We can build an ethical world--one built on structures of care--and anarchy might just be the unlikely key.
