Screen Shot 2019-02-12 at 3.37.14 PM.png

CommonGoodRVA exists to help equip Christians to steward their vocations for the common good of Richmond. Join them for this great annual conference.

At their annual conference this March, our Covenant Partner, Justin Earley, author of The Common Rule: Habits of Purpose for an Age of Distraction, will serve as the keynote speaker. Together, we will look to answer these questions:

1.     How is the structure of modern life in Richmond shaping our habits in positive and negative ways?

2.     What habits must change in your life, your work, and our city for the sake of the common good?

 We'll also hear insight on our topic from local speakers:

  • Erin Rose, our Pastoral Intern, and the Worship Director and Teaching Pastor at East End Fellowship and vocalist with Urban Doxology

  • Alex Brito, Partner at CURE and member at City Church.

 The morning will conclude with a Q&A moderated by Becca Payne, Third’s communications director.

Early registration is $15 and runs through February 28th

Regular registration and door tickets are $20. Your conference registration fee includes a $5 voucher to be used for lunch at a local restaurant (TBA) where we’ll have the chance to continue our conversations inspired by the morning’s discussion.

Below is a synopsis of The Common Rule below, and you can also find out more at www.thecommonrule.org:

Habits form us more than we form them. The modern world is a machine of a thousand invisible habits, forming us into anxious, busy, and depressed people. We yearn for the freedom and peace of the gospel, but remain addicted to our technology, shackled by our screens, and exhausted by our routines. But because our habits are the water we swim in, they are almost invisible to us. What can we do about it? The answer to our contemporary chaos is to practice a rule of life that aligns our habits to our beliefs. The Common Rule offers four daily and four weekly habits, designed to help us create new routines and transform frazzled days into lives of love for God and neighbor. Justin Earley provides concrete, doable practices, such as a daily hour of phoneless presence or a weekly conversation with a friend. These habits are “common” not only because they are ordinary, but also because they can be practiced in community. They have been lived out by people across all walks of life―businesspeople, professionals, parents, students, retirees―who have discovered new hope and purpose. As you embark on these life-giving practices, you will find the freedom and rest for your soul that comes from aligning belief in Jesus with the practices of Jesus.
