For Such a Time As This: An Evening with Rev. Sharon Risher

February 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Interfaith Round Table invites you to a powerful discussion with the Rev. Sharon Risher. She is the daughter of Mrs. Ethel Lee Lance in Charleston, South Carolina who was killed at Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, along with 8 other people, including Rev. Risher’s two cousins and a childhood friend. Through story and conviction, we will hear about the power of legacy, faith, and hope and how these have fueled Rev. Risher as an advocate for anti-racism and an end to gun violence.

Rev. Risher is the author of For Such a Time as This: Hope and Forgiveness After The Charleston Massacre. It is a powerful expression of heart and boldness in the face of trauma and personal loss. We will ask Rev. Risher about her story and the causes she holds dear. And we’ll invite her to call us to action as well: How might we be called for such a time as this?

To attend, please register here.
