Event description

Description

From Ferguson to New York to Germany and South Africa, Ms. Harper leads trainings and helps mobilize clergy and community leaders around shared values for the common good. A prolific speaker, writer and activist, Ms. Harper is the founder and president of FreedomRoad.us, a consulting group dedicated to shrinking the narrative gap in our nation by convening forums and experiences that bring common understanding, common commitment, and common action toward a just world.

On March 9, Ms. Harper will give two interactive lectures at Trinity Presbyterian Church in San Carlos, CA. The first lecture, Race and Politics in the U.S., will trace the narrative of the creation of the political construct
of race, its impact on U.S. public policy, and its implications on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The second lecture, Matthew 25: The Sheep, The Goats and The Just Ones, will dig deep into the concept of equity and outline the requirements of justice for those whom the Father speaks "well of."

Ms. Harper will conclude this year's Miguel Mendez Lecture Series on March 10 by preaching at Trinity Presbyterian Church.

Ms. Harper is the author of several books including: Evangelical Does Not Equal Republican...or Democrat (The New Press, 2008), Left Right and Christ: Evangelical Faith in Politics (Elevate, 2011), Forgive Us: Confessions of a Compromised Faith (Zondervan, 2014), and the critically acclaimed, The Very Good Gospel: How Everything Wrong can be Made Right (Waterbrook, a division of Penguin Random House, 2016). The Very Good Gospel, recognized as the "2016 Book of the Year" by Englewood Review of Books, explores God’s intent for the wholeness of all relationships in light of today’s headlines.
