We are gearing up to welcome a slate of special guests and storytellers at the 25th Anniversary celebration of the Company of Grace on March 9, 2023. We’re particularly excited to announce that speaker, writer and activist Lisa Sharon Harper will be in conversation with a small group of alumni about freedom, transformation, and the role of spirituality in healing and recovery.
Lisa Sharon Harper is the founder and president of Freedom Road, a groundbreaking consulting group that crafts experiences that bring common understanding and common commitments that lead to common action toward a more just world. Lisa is a public theologian whose writing, speaking, activism and training has sparked and fed the fires of re-formation in the church from Ferguson and Charlottesville to South Africa, Brazil, Australia and Ireland.
Lisa’s book, The Very Good Gospel was named 2016 “Book of the Year” and the Huffington Post identified Lisa as one of 50 Women Religious Leaders to Celebrate on International Women’s Day. Lisa is host of the Freedom Road Podcast, cohost of The FOUR Podcast and author of her weekly column on Substack, “The Truth Is…”. Her new book Fortune: How Race Broke My Family And The World–And How To Repair It All draws on her lifelong journey to know her family’s history, recovers the beauty of her heritage, exposes the brokenness that race has wrought in America, and casts a vision for collective repair.
ISP is honored to welcome Lisa Sharon Harper at our Company of Grace 25th anniversary event!
