A Common Good for the Vulnerable

  • Early Center at Union Presbyterian Seminary 3401 Brook Road Richmond, VA, 23227 United States (map)

Andy Crouch, author of Strong and WeakPlaying GodCulture 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 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!
