Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove Guest Preaching

Next Sunday, February 28, we have the privilege of welcoming Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove to Pillar's pulpit.

Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove is a celebrated writer and sought-after speaker. A native of North Carolina, he is a graduate of Eastern University and Duke Divinity School.

In 2003, Jonathan and his wife Leah founded the Rutba House, a house of hospitality where the formerly homeless are welcomed into a community that eats, prays, and shares life together. Jonathan directs the School for Conversion, a nonprofit that has grown out of the life of Rutba House to pursue beloved community with kids in their neighborhood, through classes in North Carolina prisons, and in community-based education around the country. Jonathan is also an Associate Minister at the historically black St. Johns Missionary Baptist Church.

Jonathan is a co-complier of the celebrated Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals, and is the author of several books on Christian spirituality, including Strangers at My DoorThe Awakening of Hope, The Wisdom of Stability, and The New Monasticism.

An evangelical Christian who connects with the broad spiritual tradition and its monastic witnesses, Jonathan is a leader in the New Monasticism movement. He speaks often about emerging Christianity to churches and conferences across the denominational spectrum and has given lectures at dozens of universities, including Calvin College, Bethel University, Duke University, Swarthmore College, St. John’s University, DePaul University, and Baylor University.

Refugee Meeting with Bethany Christian Services

Refugee Conversation, Part 2: Dreaming

Last month, around 40 Pillar people met to "Discover" what it means to be a refugee, and to learn how we as Christians are called to respond to the crisis. If you missed this meeting but would like to keep up on what we're Discovering, Dreaming, and Envisioning, check out Pillar's website. Under the "Serve" tab, click "Our City." This month, you're invited to our next conversation, which will center around a few key questions. If Pillar were to become a sponsor church to a refugee family, what would that mean for us? What does that look like? We will "Dream" about these possibilities with the guidance of Deb Hoekwater from Bethany Christian Services. Whether you were able to make it to the first meeting or not, you're invited and welcome to join us this coming Saturday, January 16th, at 10am downstairs. Light refreshments and childcare will be provided. If you plan on using childcare, please email office@pillarchurch.com with how many children you have, so that we may provide the best care possible.
