CFPA is co-sponsoring, with the Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville, a day of worship, conversation, and workshops about putting faith into action, especially when it comes to mass incarceration. The day features the participation of activist Shane Claiborne. Click here for more information and to register!
It will take place on Sunday, November 17. There will be a free worship service at 10 AM (Shane preaching). Everything after that requires registration and a ticket - lunch will be from 1 to 3:15, workshops will go from 3:15 to 4, and there will be a forging demonstration afterwards, turning a gun into a garden tool.
Workshops will include: Re-entry from incarceration; Legislative action on mass incarceration; Theological reflection; Students against mass incarceration; and Restorative Justice.
Shane Claiborne is a prominent speaker, activist, and best-selling author. Shane worked with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, and founded The Simple Way in Philadelphia. He heads up Red Letter Christians, a movement of folks who are committed to living “as if Jesus meant the things he said.” Shane is a champion for grace which has led him to jail advocating for the homeless, and to places like Iraq and Afghanistan to stand against war. Now grace fuels his passion to end the death penalty and help stop gun violence.
