Urban Grace Tacoma presents: Mercy & the Heart of God – What if we’re forgiven before we were created? A conversation with James Alison, Roman Catholic Theologian, priest and author.
April 25th 7-8:30pm at St. Leo’s Church
710 S 13th St.
The goal of the Urban Lecture Series is to model conversations that build bridges of understanding and redemptive action between faith communities and the public square. We do this on behalf of those who are most vulnerable. We recognize that our culture is organized to polarize and push us to the edges of important issues, leaving the center vacant. Edges are softened when centers are occupied with grace. This is our hope – to engage life’s most demanding questions and the people pushed to the edges, by finding centers that hold.
We deal with topics related to faith, ethics and public life. Our presenters are people who have demonstrated the ability to speak to life’s most demanding questions with grace, humor and prophetic insight.
Each lecture is unique in its structure based on the availability of the presenter(s), and the material. However, each lecture is designed to be a moveable feast involving catholic, protestant and other faith venues in the city as well as hosts who stand between traditions. The venues we select reflect our commitment to building bridges across the accidental and artificial divides the so easily separate us.
