NH Council of Churches - A Day with Paul Sherry from Interfaith Worker Justice

Greetings!

The NH Conference of the United Church of Christ Economic Justice Team in collaboration with the evolving NH Faith Labor Coalition is sponsoring a day with Paul Sherry, former UCC President and Labor Advocate.
  Paul Sherry - Faith Leader and Labor Advocate

Rev. Dr. Paul Sherry, currently the Director of Public Policy at the DC Office of INTERFAITH WORKER JUSTICE, is one of our nation's and the UCC's most distinguished theologians. Since his "retirement" from UCC national leadership in 1999, Rev. Sherry has been involved in several key national campaigns calling for economic justice for working men and women through access to decent jobs, family-sustaining wages and benefits, and dignity and respect on the job.

THREE OPPORTUNITIES TO MEET AND CONVERSE WITH REV. PAUL SHERRY!

LUNCHTIME DIALOGUE WITH CLERGY AND LAY PEOPLE
12 Noon-2:00 p.m.
NHC-UCC Conference Office
140 Sheep Davis Road, Pembroke

 

Rev. Sherry will talk about one of his key initiatives as Director of Public Policy for Interfaith Worker Justice: Faith Advocates for Jobs, an effort that includes a call for faith-based advocacy for job creation and a restored economy and for the creation of congregational-based support efforts for unemployed workers.

 

Rev. Sherry will also share his perspective on why NH faith leaders should care about NH legislative initiatives that attack worker rights, family-sustaining jobs, and more.
Please bring a brown bag lunch. The Economic Justice Ministry Team will provide a beverage, light snacks, and dessert.

 

INTERFAITH SERVICE
4:00 p.m.
St. Paul's Episcopal Church,
21 Centre Street, Concord

 

In an interfaith service open to people of all faiths (or no specific faith tradition), Rev. Paul Sherry will deliver a message about how the moral teachings of multiple faith traditions impel us to be instruments of economic justice in our own communities and beyond.

 

NH FAITH-LABOR DIALOGUE and BRAINSTORMING
5:30 p.m.
St. Paul's Episcopal Church,
21 Centre Street, Concord

 

This will be a follow-up to the initial NH Faith-Labor Dialogue Session held in October. We will receive inspiration from Rev. Sherry about working and witnessing together to achieve economically just public policy in NH.

 

A light supper will be provided.
