Poverty and the Bible Event March 22

Good afternoon everyone,

I wanted to invite you all to join me in this event coming up at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in a couple weeks.

Here’s the information:


On Thursday, March 22, at 6:30 pm, two Poverty Scholars will visit Good Shepherd from the Poverty Initiative at Union Theological Seminary in New York City. Willie Baptist is the Poverty Initiative’s Scholar-in-Residence, a formerly homeless father with over 40 years of experience organizing among the poor. John Wessel-McCoy is a project organizer with the Poverty Initiative, which is dedicated to raising up generations of religious and community leaders committed to building a movement to end poverty, led by the poor (

This lecture and question and answer event will be open to the public, in the sanctuary, and is offered as part of the Thursday Light class on Poverty and the Bible. This is a unique opportunity to hear two nationally-recognized leaders offer stories, insights, and hopes for faithful people – don’t miss it!
