Hear Micky Scottbey Jones at 2015 Bailey Lectures

The Bailey Lectures at All Saints, Austin, this year, features Micky Scottbey Jones, recently named one of Huffington Post’s “Black Christian Leaders Changing the World." Jones’ topic, “Extremists For Love,” takes its cue from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” in which King invites us all to be extremists for love in the way of Jesus. The lectures will explore what it looks like to embody that love and to join in bending the long arc of history toward justice and shalom in our communities. The endowed lecture series, free of charge and open to the public, are produced by The Front Porch and All Saints’ will take place November 20-22, 2015 at All Saints Church, 209 W. 27th St., Austin, 78705.

 

Jones currently directs training and program development for the faith-based group, TransFORM Network. In addition to her work as a community organizer, educator and activist, Jones regularly contributes to a number of publications and podcasts, such as Homebrewed Christianity, Medium, Sojourners, and more. She has more than two and a half thousand Twitter followers (@iammickyjones).
