The Salisbury/Rowan community is invited to attend the confirmation of the commissioners of the Truth, Hope, Healing and Equity Project on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in Room 315 on the Seminary campus.

Dr. Regina Dancy, Hood Theological Seminary chief financial officer, and Dr. Kim Porter, adjunct professor in Biblical studies at Hood, are among nine to be confirmed as members of the commission. Other members are Alex Clark, Betty Jo Hardy, Geoffrey Hoy, Michael Martelli, the Rev. Anthony Smith, the Rev. Robin Tanner and Gregory VanZandt.

The Truth, Hope, Healing and Equity Project was created by Tanner, lead pastor at Piedmont Unitarian Universalist Church in Salisbury, and Smith, teaching pastor at Mission House in Salisbury, after the “Beginning a Healing Conversation” community forum hosted by Hood Theological Seminary last year.

The project will bring “a diversity of stakeholders together across racial, gender and class lines to harvest our collective wisdom and to conspire together for deep community transformation,” said Smith.

Hood Theological Seminary is located at 1810 Lutheran Synod Drive, Salisbury. The event is free and the public is welcome.
