#FCQ16 WILL FEATURE SINGER/SONGWRITER DAVID BAZAN AND AUTHOR/ACTIVISTS LISA SHARON HARPER AND BRIAN MCLAREN. PUT THESE DATES ON YOUR CALENDAR AND JOIN US FOR THREE GREAT EVENTS!
In such a tumultuous election season Lisa Sharon Harper shares with us a vision of peace and reconciliation between political parties, people, and nations. Join us as Lisa shares this vision through the lens of her new book, The Very Good Gospel.
As the Chief Church Engagement Officer for Sojourners, Lisa has been leading trainings and helping mobilize clergy and community leaders around shared values for the common good, with a focus on racial justice. Prior to joining Sojourners, Lisa was the founding executive director of New York Faith & Justice. Harper’s faith-rooted approach to advocacy and organizing has activated people across the U.S. and around the world to address structural and political injustice as an outward demonstration of their personal faith.
Harper was recognized in 2015 as one of “50 Powerful Women Religious Leaders to Celebrate on International Women’s Day” by the Huffington Post.
She earned her master’s in human rights from Columbia University in New York City and is currently in the process of ordination in the Evangelical Covenant Church.
