The Cross and The Lynching Tree

THURSDAY, JUNE 4th @ 5:00 p.m.

St. Paul’s is co-hosting with Second Presbyterian Church a Faith on Tap Series every other Thursday through Zoom (online). Faith on Tap is an opportunity for folks to gather with their beverage of choice and discuss topics with one another through a faith-based lens. We invite you to join us for this ecumenical gathering to share in collective conversation with our neighbors down the street from our own homes.

During our next Faith on Tap, Roger Gench, Theologian in Residence at Second Presbyterian Church, will lead us through a conversation of the book The Cross and the Lynching Tree by James Cone. Roger will provide an overview of the book and then lead a discussion on a selection of quotes. We invite you to join us- all are welcome. Reading the book is not required.

The Cross and The Lynching Tree by Rev. Dr. James Cone: “The cross and the lynching tree are the two most emotionally charged symbols in the history of the African American community. In this powerful new work (2013), theologian James H. Cone explores these symbols and their interconnection in the history and souls of black folk.”

Our next gathering together is Thursday, May 21st @ 5:00 p.m. John Moser, professor emeritus of urban studies and planning at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) will summarize Richmond’s racial history from the 1900s to the present while leaving ample room for discussion. He has learned that “Richmonders tend to know a bit more about the 18th and 19th centuries than they do the 20th and early 21st centuries.” Join us for our continued ecumenical discussion of racism, justice, and the city of Richmond.
