July 17 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm EDT
Hilton Christian Church, 100 James River Drive
Newport News, VA 23601 United States

Join us for a complimentary lunch as we have a dialogue about impediments to a flourishing church and community.

"Pope Francis expounds on the cost of excluding African Americans and others from the economy, writing, "Until exclusion and inequality in society (and in the economy) and between peoples is reversed, it will be impossible to eliminate violence...When a society - Whether local, national or global - is willing to leave a part of itself on the fringes, no political programs or resources spent on law enforcement or surveillance systems can indefinitely guarantee tranquility." (Luke Bobo, Race, Economics and Apologetics: Is there A Connection?)

We are partnering with the monthly Pastors Dialogue on Racism, Poverty and Violence for this event. Also, as part of their Community Week, the Newport News Police Department Academy Recruits and the Academy Training Staff will be joining us.

Your physical place in your neighborhood matters and your property has the power to be a life-giving presence to all who encounter it, even those simply walking by on a weekday afternoon.
