The church as it is now, and what it could be

December 14, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Grace Church Yorktown invites all to attend a conversation with The Rev. Canon Willis Foster, who is the diocese’s first Canon for Diversity, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 14 in the Grace Parish Hall, 111 Church Street in historic Yorktown. Light refreshments will be served. Canon Foster has been invited by Grace’s Becoming Beloved Community group, which arose from the earliest groups to complete the Sacred Ground series on race, grounded in faith. He was appointed by Bishop Susan Haynes to enable the Diocese to live into being God’s beloved community. He’ll lead a conversation about the Church as it is now, what it could become, and what it might take to get us there. It is a topic on Grace parishioners’ minds as we begin Grace Yorktown’s 326th year of ministry on the Virginia Peninsula.
