WEDNESDAYS AT 3 PM ON ZOOM

Sacred Conversations on Race on November 30th at 3 pm is with Ms. Brenda Jones, former Communications Director for Representative John Lewis.

Ms. Jones is a proud, native Washingtonian with a passion for social justice, history, and the arts. She studied the Civil Rights Movement. She worked in media as a researcher for ABC News’ Washington, D.C. Bureau. In 2010, Brenda earned the prestigious Theodore C. Sorenson Speechwriting Award. In 2012, she worked with Rep. Lewis on a book, Across that Bridge: Life Lessons and a Vision for Change, and we won the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work/Biography. The National Journal honored Ms. Jones as one of the 20 Most Powerful Women on Capitol Hill in 2015, and the Stennis Center for Public Leadership selected her as a senior fellow in the 114th, Congress.

Each week we gather for a holy dialogue on issues related to the realities of racism in our country, community and church. We are blessed as a congregation with members (White, African-American, men, women, all sexual orientations) who are committed to the on-going work for justice. During our weekly gatherings, we raise awareness around issues, build trusting relationships, and commit to loving action. There is always space at the table for you to join us for this sacred conversation.

Contact Pastor Wes for more information and for the Zoom link.
