Come hear about how to join the URC IMPACT TEAM!

Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
— Martin Luther King, Jr.

Gender Talk: Where are the Boundaries?

  • First Presbyterian Church of Norfolk (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

There is no denying that the nation is changing as the world is changing. This mean the church and religious life as well as the workplace is changing. An influx of concerns related to diversity, including race and gender matters are filling the news. The church must not turn a deaf ear to these issues. Now is an important time for the church to create space for frank conversations about the situation of race and gender in America.

The Urban Renewal Center will host a new three-part Adult Education Seminar on Diversity in America. The topic for the February class will be "Gender Talk Where are the Boundaries?" This panel-style seminar will focus on the issue of gender inequality and the abuse continuum expressed by the national #metoo movement. By the end of the class, those who attend will have a better understanding of the blight of abused women and a Christian vision for gender equality.

Join us Sunday, February 11th at 11am, Sunday, February 18th at 11am and March 4th at 11am at the First Presbyterian Church of Norfolk in First Hall. Each class will only last one hour. We will end each session at 12 noon. The class will be a live podcast recording.

Some of the panelists are Jen Hatzung, Hunter Johnston, Jennifer Valentine, Rev. Dr. Ella Thompson, Rev. Valena Hoy, Dr. Kimberly Alexander, and Brittany Szkaradnik.
