THE HESED LECTURE SERIES
Friday and Saturday, March 26-27
Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary

On Friday and Saturday March 26-27, the Hispanic Student Association and
the African American Student Group at Austin Presbyterian Theological
Seminary are hosting the Hesed Lecture Series! Our theme this year is
Building Safe Neighborhoods?

The term Hesed–הסד– is the Hebrew word for Mercy, Loving-kindness, and
Justice. HESED is the center of our discussions. This is a prime opportunity to engage in meaningful discussions about safe communities and
we hope you will consider joining us and encouraging others to do so as well.

The goal is simple: To open up discussion and dialogue involving city and
state government, the church, and people from surrounding communities. Our
desire is to learn from each other and empower voices both from within and
outside of the church to advocate for one another.

This two day gathering will provide an interactive environment from which
to connect, share ideas, and implement plans for the community that go
beyond a secular context, expanding into a biblical one for the greater
good of all citizens.

This year’s speakers are Rev. Freddie D. Haynes III from Friendship West
Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas and Attorney Virginia Raymond from Austin, Texas.

Thanks in advance for supporting this important event and sharing this information with others.

Location: Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary
100 East 27th Street, Austin, 78705; (713) 557-6520
When: Friday, March 27, 2015 at 7:00pm- 9:00pm (evening reception)
