January 20 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Becoming the Beloved Community in the Midst of Fear, Injustice and Incivility: A Celebration of the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Featuring the Rev. Dr. Gayle Fisher-Stewart
Sunday, January 20, 2019
3 to 5 p.m.
Trinity Episcopal Church
125 E. Broad Street, Columbus Ohio
The Rev. Dr. Gayle Fisher-Stewart currently serves as the associate rector of Calvary Episcopal Church, Washington, D.C. Dr. Fisher-Stewart is also the founder of the Center for the Study of Faith in Justice, an independent non-profit of Calvary Episcopal Church. Her call to ordained ministry brings over forty years’ experience as an active police officer, consultant to law enforcement agencies, and university-level teacher of criminal justice. The Center examines the intersection of faith and justice in the world, provides a safe space for discussing issues that divide the body of Christ, and organizes speakers and training to guide faith communities and organizations in seeking reconciliation.
Through her work, Fisher-Stewart is bringing the church into the national conversations on racial reconciliation, gun violence and policing at a time when these issues are foremost in American consciousness.
Join us on Sunday, January 20 from 3 to 5 p.m., where Fisher-Stewart will share her experiences from connecting ministry, law enforcement and the community, and provide insight as to what it means to answer the call to Become Beloved Community. A brief reception will be hosted by Trinity Episcopal Church afterward.
This event is made possible through a collaborative of the Diocese of Southern Ohio’s Becoming Beloved Community Task Force, the Bishop Herbert Thompson Chapter-Union of Black Episcopalians, Trinity Episcopal Church of Columbus, St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church of Westerville, and St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Columbus. This event is free and open to all.
