Upside Down: The Gospel on the Streets of El Barrio (Event 3)
Wed 12 April 2017, 09:30 – 12:00 EDT
Join us for a three-day conference in East Harlem, New York entitled "Upside Down: The Gospel on the Streets of El Barrio." The third day of the conference will begin on Wednesday, April 12th from 9:30 AM to Noon at Church of St. Edward the Martyr in east Harlem. Our presenters will be Rowan Williams and Jim Wallis who will be in conversation about William Stringfellow on the theme of "Betrayal and Suffering." Rowan Williams is the former Archbishop of Canterbury and Jim Wallis is the founder and editor of Sojourners (both the magazine and the community based in Washington, DC).
We remember William Stringfellow, an Episcopal lay theologian and attorney who spent years living in a tenement in E 100th St. He was an advocate, and tireless companion, alongside those who experienced the daily grind of poverty. He saw poverty as an example of the power of death at work in our society. He drew the battle lines vividly in his writing and called us to hope while staring straight into the face of death. “What is requisite to mission, to the exposure of God's Word within the precarious and perishing existence of poverty, is the congregation which relies on and celebrates the resurrection.”
