Common Good RVA 2014


cgrva-logo

CommonGoodRVA

There’s a whole lot of good going on in Richmond these days. Just about everywhere you look — in art, business, food, neighborhoods, families, etc. — there are huge, exciting changes afoot. Want to be a part of the positive energy that’s taken hold of our city, but feel like it’s an unattainable goal if you don’t work at a non-profit or a think tank? Common Good RVA has grown out of the desire to affirm that goal, to find out ways we can achieve it in our everyday lives, and to recognize and be inspired by others who are already promoting the good of Richmond in their workplaces daily.

About the Common Good RVA Conference

A two-part conference exploring how we can work for the common good of Richmond in our everyday lives. Featuring Skye Jethani, Executive Editor of Leadership Journal and author of Futureville.

Friday, October 3
A public exploration of the common good
5pm – 10pm at the Virginia Historical Society

Saturday, October 4
A deeper dive into faith, neighborhood, and vocation
8:30am – 3pm at the Early Center at Union Seminary

More detailed schedules are here.

xiansBOOK: When Christians Get It Wrong

A growing number of people today have opted out of Christianity and the church because they see condemning attitudes and actions coming from those who claim to be Christian. Outsiders are increasingly seeing Christians as people who judge others, condemn people of different faiths, and more.

Adam Hamilton believes that following Jesus is much more about open doors than it is with locked gateways however. In this book, Adam will show you a different way of understanding the critical issues that are keeping people from Christianity, and help you develop strategies for being a compassionate, yet committed voice for the Gospel of Christ!

When: Wednesday, October 29, 6-8 PM
Where: The home of Marcia Fryer
Cost: Purchase your own book (When Christians Get It Wrong by Adam Hamilton)
