Fragmented by the fast-pace culture of our technological world, we know our need for community by feeling its lack. But how do we move from being community seekers to become community builders? Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove draws on ancient monastic wisdom and the experiments of contemporary intentional communities to tell stories that inspire hope and offer practical examples of building the beloved community.

JWilsonHartgroveJonathan Wilson-Hartgrove is a celebrated spiritual writer and sought-after speaker. A native of North Carolina, he is a graduate of Eastern University and Duke Divinity School.

In 2003, Jonathan and his wife Leah founded the Rutba House, a house of hospitality where the formerly homeless are welcomed into a community that eats, prays, and shares life together. Jonathan directs the School for Conversion, a nonprofit that has grown out of the life of Rutba House to pursue beloved community with kids in their neighborhood, through classes in North Carolina prisons, and in community-based education around the country. Jonathan is also an Associate Minister at the historically black St. John’s Missionary Baptist Church.

The worship resource “Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals” by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove will be available for purchase following the event.  (cash/cheque only)
