Please join First Christian Church of Vallejo as we host writer, pastor, and activist John Pavlovitz for a weekend of inspiration, encouragement, and storytelling. John will share reflections from his books A Bigger Table and Hope and Other Superpowers, as well as his 23-year journey as a progressive pastor. If you are unfamiliar with John Pavlovitz, please check out his blog “Stuff That Needs To Be Said” at http://www.johnpavlovitz.com. He is highly inspirational and not afraid to speak his mind about all the injustices in this country. You'll leave with a sense of hope and a renewed clarity on how to be the kind of people the world needs right now!
“Blessed are the Damn-Givers” Speaking Event / Q&A - 11/15/2019 7pm to 9pm - $25.00 per ticket
These are disorienting days. The disconnection and enmity have taken a toll on all of us; on our families, our friendships, our local communities, our faith communities. What do we do to right-side things? How can we be agents of compassion in days when cruelty seems to be trending?
“Avoiding Compassion Fatigue” Workshop - 11/16/2019 10am to 1pm - $40.00 per ticket
To be compassionate is to bleed; to feel deeply for the damage around you and to be moved to respond to it. This is a beautiful and invaluable instinct, but it is costly too. There is a toll the trauma of the world takes on us when we seek to step into that dangerous space and to work for healing and justice. In days when so much need is at our doorsteps and on our news feeds, how do we attend to it all without becoming overwhelmed and consumed by it? How can be cultivate hope when it is hard to come by?
