Event description

Description

Join Saint Moses Church, Baltimore, as we host a conversation with writer and activist Kathy Khang. Ms. Khang will be discussing her timely new book, Raise Your Voice: Why We Stay Silent and How to Speak Up, a stirring call for Christians to find and use the voices that God gives us. Pastor Sam Park will introduce Ms. Khang, who will share selections from Raise Your Voice, followed by a conversation about the book facilitated by St. Mo's parishioner Anna Scott Bell. The event will conclude with audience Q&A, after which the author will sign books.

Doors open at 6:30. Refreshments will be provided and books will be available for purchase.

We look forward to welcoming you to St. Mo's as we consider what it looks like to "raise your voice" in our neighborhoods, in Baltimore, and beyond!

BOOK DESCRIPTION

You have a voice. And you have God's permission to use it.

In some communities, certain voices are amplified and elevated while others are erased and suppressed. It can be hard to speak up, especially in the ugliness of social media. Power dynamics keep us silent and marginalized, especially when race, ethnicity, and gender are factors. What can we do about it?

Activist Kathy Khang roots our voice and identity in the image of God. Because God created us in our ethnicity and gender, our voice is uniquely expressed through the totality of who we are. We are created to speak, and we can both speak up for ourselves and speak out on behalf of others. Khang offers insights from faithful heroes who raised their voices for the sake of God's justice, and she shows how we can do the same today, in person, in social media, in organizations, and in the public square.

Be silent no more. If you have wondered when and how to speak, hear God's invitation to you to find and steward your authentic voice, whether in word or deed, to communicate the good news in a messed-up world. As you discern God's voice calling you to speak, you will discover how your voice sounds as you express God's heart to others. And the world will hear you loud and clear.
