Our 2018 Conference: A Common Good for the Vulnerable
Tickets for our 2018 conference are now on sale! This year's topic is: A Common Good for the Vulnerable.
Andy Crouch, author of Strong and Weak, Playing God, Culture Making, and The Tech-Wise Family, will serve as our keynote speaker during a 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, Vice President and Director of Research Operations 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 Richmond’s 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 where we’ll have the chance to continue our conversations inspired by the morning’s discussion.
We look forward to seeing you!
