    Commonwealth Interfaith Service

    Date: May 23, 2022

    This year’s Commonwealth Interfaith Service will be in person this year for the first time since 2019. It will be on Monday, May 23, at Market Square Presbyterian Church, 20 S. 2nd Street, Harrisburg, PA, with the service beginning at 6:00 pm. We are exploring making it available on Zoom or Facebook Live, so we are asking for folks to register by clicking here so we can provide information to join the service if in-person attendance isn’t possible. Parking will be free for those who attend in person in the Market Square Garage next door to the church.

    Lecture: Anger, Love and Power

    Date: May 20, 2022

    “Anger, Love and Power,” a Kelso Lecture on Race and Faith will be held Friday, May 20, at 7 p.m. in-person at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and online.

    The public lecture will feature Dennis Edwards. Some Bible readers dismiss or demonize anger, but anger can provoke positive change when rightly understood. Similarly, understanding and appreciating that love is not sentimentality but actively redresses injustice will fuel our imaginations for how Jesus-followers can help reshape our neighborhoods.
