7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
$10 suggested ticket price (see below for info regarding pricing options)

Join us for a conversation with evangelist and author Patricia Lyons whose newest book, What is Evangelism?, offers an engaging, entertaining, faithful, and contagious Episcopal vision for sharing the Christian faith as a way to go deeper in our own relationship with God. Come and hear her strong and uplifting argument that the Episcopal Church’s theology, sacramental ministry, and commitment to social justice have an essential role to play in mainline Christianity and in the public square. Leave with a blueprint for evangelism in today’s world for every follower of Jesus. 

Patricia M. Lyons teaches and serves as Senior Advisor to the Dean for Evangelism Initiatives at Virginia Theological Seminary. She is a member of the presiding bishop’s cabinet on evangelism and the working group for the “Way of Love” curricular and support resources. An honors graduate from Harvard College in the Comparative Study of Religion, she holds a Master of Divinity degree from the Harvard Divinity School, and received her doctorate from the Virginia Theological Seminary.

“Written through the lens of what evangelism means in the 21st century, this book is both deeply rooted in both the Anglican/Episcopal tradition and Lyons’s infectious love for Jesus. The result is accessible, encouraging, and meaningful with real-life applications for every reader. What is Evangelism? reminds us that the first step in sharing the Good News is listening, and I can think of no better place to begin that practice than with this book.” 
   – Jerusalem Greer, Staff Officer for Evangelism for The Episcopal Church
