Becoming Beloved Community Sunday Forum

The Becoming Beloved Community Task Force is pleased to invite you to our Sunday Forum on Sunday, October 16 at 1130 AM. As part of our continuing journey to become a more beloved community here at Saint Mark’s, we have invited Julie Lythcott-Haims to speak to us on the topic of how we can combat racism in our daily lives.

Julie Lythcott-Haims was born in Nigeria and after moving to the US as a small child, was educated at Stanford University, Harvard Law School and the California College of the Arts.  She is an author of three non-fiction books: How to Raise an Adult, on parenting; Real American, a memoir; and Your Turn: How to Be an Adult. She has previously served as dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising and an associate Provost at Stanford University.

If you have time beforehand, please see the video discussion between Ms. Lythcott-Haims and Pastor Kaloma Smith of the University AME Zion Church in Palo Alto, What Does an Anti-Racist Community Look Like?

This Forum will take place in the Church, not in the Kennedy Room.

Please note Ms. Lythcott- Haims is currently running for a seat on the Palo Alto City Council but this is not a campaign appearance. The church does not endorse specific candidates for any office.
