Home: A Sense of Belonging

November 6, 2019

A Sunday-morning Formation series about housing, eviction and homelessness continues on November  17 and 24 in Wood Fellowship Hall Overflow at 10 a.m.

In this second discussion, Tommy Holderness FPC Member and attorney at Legal Aid of North Carolina, will talk about the connection between his calling to Union Seminary and how it led him to leave a corporate law practice for his present role.  He sees home as central to belonging and will focus on evictions and their impact on individuals and communities.

On Sunday, November 24,  Liz Clasen-Kelly, CEO of the Men’s Shelter of Charlotte and Urban Ministry Center, will address the status of homelessness in Charlotte.    

Kathy Izard, who led the first session on November 10, found that her work with those who have been chronically homeless transformed her life and her faith. Izard is the author of The Hundred Story Home and A Good Night for Mr. Coleman, and she was instrumental in establishing Moore Place, permanent housing for those who had been chronically homeless.
