Rethinking Poverty: A community series

Mission | August 1, 2015

St. Paul Lutheran Church will host Rethinking Poverty, a series of conversations about socioeconomics, beginning on Monday, Aug. 31, 7 p.m.

The monthly discussion will be led by a variety of people who share a common purpose: work in understanding how poverty affects individuals, communities, and institutions – and how change can happen in order to lessen the impact.

The first topic will be led by Barb Brunkan, social worker and consultant. It is titled, What does poverty look like in our community?

“No matter your walk of life, poverty is a reality to be understood in order to be bridged,” said Dana Welser, who guides St. Paul’s partnership with two neighborhood schools – Madison Elementary and J.B. Young K-8. “We hope that these conversations will inspire some new ways of thinking.”

Following Aug. 31, additional conversations will be held on Sept. 28, Oct, 26, Nov. 16 at 7 p.m. at St. Paul.

St. Paul Lutheran Church is at 2136 Brady St. Light refreshments will be served. The series is free and open to the public.
