Share A Common Good for the Vulnerable

Event Details

Andy Crouch, author of Strong and Weak, Playing God, Culture Making, and The Tech-Wise Family, will serve as our keynote in this morning spent exploring this idea:

 A common good that does no good for the vulnerable is neither common, nor good.

 We’ll also hear from:

  • Carrie Rose Pace, Director of Communications, Greater Richmond Transit Company (GRTC)
  • Don Coleman, lead pastor of East End Fellowship and former Richmond Public School Board member

Our morning will conclude with a panel discussion and Q&A moderated by Rachel Burgess, Principal at SIR.

Some questions we’ll consider during our conversation…

  • How do we think about who is vulnerable in our communities and how do we work for a common good that is good for all?
  • What would it mean for us to understand how all jobs and all vocations shape the world for the better or the worse of the vulnerable?
  • How can we see Richmonds peoples and institutions in new ways that help us understand our role in working for a common good that is good for the vulnerable?

Tickets are $15 through February 5th; the price goes up to $20 beginning February 6th. Childcare is available for infants through age 5 for $10 per child, but you must register by February 5th to secure a spot. Childcare concludes at 12pm.

Your conference registration fee includes a $5 voucher to be used for lunch at a local restaurant (Urban Farmhouse in Scott's Addition OR Triple Crossing in Fulton) where we’ll have the chance to continue our conversations inspired by the morning’s discussion.

We look forward to seeing you!
