Just one more day until Common Good RVA’s evening with author, speaker, and thinker Amy Julia Becker!
During her time with us, Amy Julia will help us name the problems of privilege—who it excludes and how it harms—and the importance of taking that knowledge and moving towards confession and humble, loving,collectiveaction.
Amy Julia’s latest book is White Picket Fences: Turning Toward Love in a World Divided by Privilege. Other titles include A Good and Perfect Gift: Faith, Expectations, and a Little Girl Named Penny, andSmall Talk: Learning From My Children About What Matters Most.
Jonathan Chan, Chief Development officer for CHAT (Church Hill Activities & Tutoring) will provide some Richmond-based context following Amy Julia’s talk. Our evening will conclude with a time of Q&A moderated by Corey Widmer, lead pastor of Third Church and Common Good RVA co-founder.
We'll meet from 7pm to 8:30pm in Third Church's Fellowship Hall (600 Forest Avenue). This event is free, but we would love to know if you're coming!
