The Dogwood Center is once again a remote location for the live broadcast of Calvin College’s 2017 January Series.
On Monday, January 16, Lisa Sharon Harper will present “The Very Good Gospel: How Everything Wrong Can Be Made Right“.
From Ferguson to New York to Germany, Lisa has been leading trainings and helping mobilize clergy and community leaders around shared values for the common good as Sojourners Chief Church Engagement Officer. Prior to joining Sojourners, Lisa was the founding executive director of New York Faith & Justice - an organization at the hub of a new ecumenical movement to end poverty in New York City. She also organized faith leaders to speak out for immigration reform and organized the South Bronx Conversations for Change, a dialogue-to-change project between police and the community. 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 Huffington Post. She earned her master’s in human rights from Columbia University and is currently in the process of ordination in the Evangelical Covenant Church.
This lecture will be broadcast live in the Black Box and Main Stage from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Admission is free. For those who would like a lunch ($5), please call 231.924.8885 to reserve one at least 24 hours in advance of the lecture you would like to attend.
