Epworth Journeying Toward Justice and the Dismantling Racism group of the Corridor District present a community lecture series open to all.
The September 17th lecture features the topic Living Without Enemies.
The speaker, Marcia Owen, is a native of Durham, NC and a graduate of Duke University. When the Religious Coalition for a Nonviolent Durham was formed in 1992, Owen took on the task of organizing prayer vigils after every Durham homicide. She served as Director of this Coalition until 2016. Newer projects include a post-prison ministry and educational partnerships with groups like Parents of Murdered Children and the federal Weed and Seed program. Owen is also credited with encouraging the Durham police to launch Project Safe Neighborhoods, which targets illegal gun dealers and tries to convince young people to avoid using weapons. With Rev Samuel Wells, former dean of Duke Chapel, Marcia Owen is the coauthor of Living Without Enemies: Being Present in the Midst of Violence (published in 2012).
All are invited at 3:00 pm on Sunday Afternoon!
