On Reconciling in Community
On Sunday, February 12, Charles Marsh will speak at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Richmond, Virginia. He will contribute to the church’s year-long series, Be Reconciled, in which an arc of reconciliation is traced through three movements: reconciling relationships, reconciling to God, and reconciling communities. In a presentation entitled “Resistance, Reconciliation, and Costly Grace: The Witness of Dietrich Bonhoeffer,” Marsh will introduce to the “reconciling in community” portion of the series. The forum will begin at 10:00 am, and the public is invited to attend.
