Conversation with Scott Bessenecker on Thursday (4/28)

Living with and Learning from the Poor: Pizza & Conversation with Scott Bessenecker
Thursday, April 28th
6:00 PM (Pizza Provided) 
Dwight Hall Library (67 High Street)

Sponsored by: InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and ECV

InterVarsity Christian fellowship and ECV has invited IVCF National Director of Global Projects and author Scott Bessenecker to lead a thought-provoking discussion over dinner at Yale’s Dwight Hall Library on Thursday, 4/28 at 6 PM.

Author of The New Friars, How to Inherit the Earth, and Living Mission, Scott has been witness to and participant in an emerging movement of mainly middle-class highly educated men and women who are seeking a shared life among the poor. After visiting intentional communities as diverse as Old Order Mennonites in Wisconsin, Jesus People in Chicago and those who have relocated to the slum communities of the developing world, he has learned a few things about how life together can be transformational – for those who embrace community as well as for the world around us. Scott has spent significant time in global urban centers, leading student teams who live with, partner with, serve, and learn from some of the poorest slum communities in the world.

Come join us for dinner and conversation - format is casual and dialogue-centered, so please contribute your own dreams, thoughts, and experiences.
