SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21 @ 10 AM
We’re delighted to welcome The Rev. Dr. Leah Gunning Francis to Christ Church Cathedral’s pulpit this Sunday at 10 AM and afterwards for a Lenten CoffeeTalk at 11 AM. She is the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty at Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Dr. Gunning Francis is also the author of the book Ferguson and Faith: Sparking Leadership and Awakening Community (Chalice Press, 2015), for which she interviewed more than two dozen clergy and young activists who were actively involved in the movement for racial justice in Ferguson and beyond. Her second book, Faith After Ferguson: Building Resilience and Cultivating Wisdom (Chalice Press, 2021) is scheduled to be released this summer. As a “scholarvist,” Dr. Gunning Francis is actively engaged in the movement for racial justice in the United States and seeks to make the connections between the church, academy and streets in her writing, teaching and preaching.
