Book Talk: How much of our faith do we bring to our work?

Sun 10/24 | 12:45-2:15 in the Elders Room

Join in a conversation with noted author and award-winning journalist Elizabeth Becker, as she explores how faith shapes her work. In her first book, When the War Was Over, she examined the Khmer Rouge revolution. After reading the book, a friend who is a committed Evangelical Christian told Elizabeth she had written a book of Christian witness. Elizabeth responded that she had had no such intention. Her friend responded, “Even better.” Elizabeth’s new book, You Don’t Belong Here, tells the history of three female war correspondents who covered the Vietnam War and shaped history.

As Americans, we—especially those of us in Washington, D.C.—are defined by our work. Elizabeth, a member of St. Mark’s, will share how faith has shaped her career by examining war through the lenses of naivete, grace, and human cost. Join her and share your faith journey!
