Churches Matter! Lives Matter!

Rick will focus the conversation on one of the central questions he takes on in his recent book, “What does it take to create strong faith communities that have the capacity to provide solidarity to those who are most at risk in our community and around the world.” Rick knows Nassau Church well, and we have worked together on numerous projects over the last few years. Please come for a conversation together about what it takes to shape a relevant Christian witness in the challenging times in which we live.

Rick Ufford-Chase and his wife Kitty are the Co-Directors of Stony Point Center and co-founders of the multifaith Community of Living Traditions. Rick is the author of the book Faithful Resistance: Gospel Visions for the Church in a Time of Empire, and he is the Associate Director for Interfaith Formation for the Presbyterian Mission Agency.
