Event description

Description

Rubicon is a yearly gathering to intentionally collaborate and explore ideas about how faith can be expressed within our cultural context.

Rubicon is taking place on October 12th, 2018 featuring Lisa Sharon Harper.

From Ferguson to New York to Germany and South Africa, Lisa Sharon Harper leads training and helps mobilize clergy and community leaders around shared values for the common good. A prolific speaker, writer and activist, Ms. Harper is the founder and president of FreedomRoad.us, a consulting group dedicated to shrinking the narrative gap in the United States by convening forums and experiences that bring common understanding, common commitment, and common action toward a just world. Ms. Harper is the author of several books, including: Evangelical Does Not Equal Republican...or Democrat (The New Press, 2008), Left Right and Christ: Evangelical Faith in Politics (Elevate, 2011), Forgive Us: Confessions of a Compromised Faith (Zondervan, 2014), and the critically acclaimed, The Very Good Gospel: How Everything Wrong can be Made Right (Waterbrook, 2016). The Very Good Gospel, recognized as the "2016 Book of the Year" by Englewood Review of Books, explores God’s intent for the wholeness of all relationships in light of today’s headlines.

In 2015 The Huffington Post recognized her as one of “50 Powerful Women Religious Leaders to Celebrate on International Women’s Day.” Most recently, Relevant Magazine recognized The Very Good Gospel as one of “Six Books that Will Change the Way You See the World” and Ms. Harper as one of “Seven Leaders to Follow in 2017.”

Antoinette Mushimiyimana has recently published her first book, This Is My Story, a first hand account of the Rwandan genocide and her life afterwards. Antoinette was born in Rwanda to a Tutsi family, with three younger brothers. In her book, she details how, on the morning after the genocide began in 1994, her father sent her and her brothers to hide from the Hutu. The Hutu began slaughtering the Tutsi following years of animosity between the two ethnicities, which spiralled out of control following the death of the country’s president. Antoinette hid in a latrine pit for three weeks, surviving on rain water, hiding from militiamen joking about killing and raping. She later found out her mother and brother and a hundred of her extended family were killed. After fleeing Rwanda, she decided to return as a missionary. There she met her father and visited one of her family’s killers in prison. She has now been able to forgive those who killed her family, which she says is a choice she made.

“Forgiveness is a choice, so I made that choice when I learned about forgiveness.”

Rubicon will also feature many, soon to be announced, additional guests from the spheres of media, sports, politics, arts and entertainment, business, the social sector and the church.

Please Note: From Oct 4th, refunds for tickets will no longer be available.
