We are incredibly blessed to welcome as our guest preacher on December 6, Rev. Dr. David Vásquez-Levy, who serves as the president of the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley.
David was raised in Guatemala in an interreligious household—Jewish and Christian—and has lived, studied, and worked in four countries.
A committed pastor, a nationally recognized immigration leader, and a sought after speaker, Vásquez-Levy leads at the intersection of faith, higher education, and social change. Vásquez-Levy regularly contributes a faith perspective to the national conversation on immigration and is the author of various publications that explore migration stories in sacred texts and in people's lives. He has lived in four countries and taught courses and led international study and service trips across the globe.
Vásquez-Levy is the author of various publications that explore migration stories in sacred texts and in people’s lives, and he has taught courses and led international study and service trips in Mexico, Guatemala, Chile, Ghana, Israel, Palestine, and Jordan. His international experience has also included refugee resettlement work in Canada and studies at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich, Germany.
In addition to preaching in worship on this day, he will also be teaching the adult Sunday School class at 9 a.m., focusing on immigration issues in light of current events in Syria and Mexico.
Then, after worship, he’ll be meeting with church leadership for a conversation of leadership and the future of the church.
Please join us on December 6 to welcome David! You will be blessed and inspired by his energy, vision and expertise.
