Working for the common good.
There’s a whole lot of good going on in Richmond these days. Just about everywhere you look — in art, business, food, neighborhoods, families, etc. — there are huge, exciting changes afoot. Want to be a part of the positive energy that’s taken hold of our city, but feel like it’s an unattainable goal if you don’t work at a non-profit or a think tank? Common Good RVA has grown out of the desire to affirm that goal, to find out ways we can achieve it in our everyday lives, and to recognize and be inspired by others who are already promoting the good of Richmond in their workplaces daily.
Most of us have wondered, “What’s my place in the world?” That common question reveals how our sense of identity is intertwined with our sense of place. Join us on Saturday morning, January 23, 2016, for a conference aimed at helping Christians find their place both in God’s story and Richmond’s story through their work in the world. Learn from a national expert on the intersection of faith and work and hear from local practitioners who have found their place contributing to the common good of Richmond.
