Community Call and Text Study: Abundance and Tenacity
Thursday, October 26th-12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join the Center for Public Justice’s Families Valued team on Thursday, October 26, for our third quarterly Zoom community call and text study titled “Abundance and Tenacity” in the “Setting a Table Where Families Flourish” series.
Throughout this year, we have been inviting advocates to a conversation about the Psalmist’s abundant vision, what it means for our own lives, and the work to build a common life where all families have not only enough but more than enough.
We are excited to have Sharifa Stevens join us to discuss how we can use our gifts and tenacity to fuel change in our communities.
Sharifa Stevens is the daughter of Jamaican immigrants, born and raised in New York, and currently residing with her family in Dallas, TX. She graduated from Columbia University in New York with a Bachelor in African American Studies before earning a Master in theology from Dallas Theological Seminary. Sharifa is a conglomeration of intersections: Bronx wisdom and prep-school code-switching; smoke shop Now-and-Laters and church peppermints; hip-hop and hymns. Intersections can be a mash-up—rife with both tragedy and opportunity; places of pause within movement. Sharifa aspires to use writing as a vehicle that moves readers to intersect with the sacred and the honest. She contributed to the book Vindicating the Vixens: Revisiting Sexualized, Vilified, & Marginalized Women of the Bible and Rally: Communal Prayers for Lovers of Jesus and Justice. Sharifa is married to a Renaissance man, and mother to two lively boys.
