One Book – One Church:
Debby Irving, author of Waking Up White: And Finding Myself in the Story of Race,” joins us in an all-church book discussion. Presentation at 11:15 a.m. in Congregational Hall with a light brunch followed by a 1:00 p.m. interactive workshop on how we name power and interrupt patterns of privilege in our communities. The book is available in the BMPC Book Center for $5 each.
The Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church Community Forum Distinguished Speaker Series began in 1997 in conjunction with our congregation’s 125th anniversary. The forums were endowed by the Anna and Herbert H. Middleton, Sr. Fund of our church Foundation and have been offered as a service to the community at large. More than 50 guests have helped us to gain fresh perspectives on dilemmas we face and see new options for ways to move forward.
The Rev. Dr. Tony Campolo and his son Bart will be the guest speakers on Monday, April 9 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary for the next Community Forum. They co-authored the book, Why I Left/Why I Stayed: Conversations on Christianity Between an Evangelical Father and His Humanist Son.
In their talk at BMPC, Tony and Bart will debate their spiritual differences and explore commonalities around their faith, belief, and hope. This presentation offers the opportunity both to observe the process of constructive disagreement about religion and to re-examine one’s own beliefs. A book signing will follow their presentation.
