The Row House: Civility. Lost Art Or Lost Cause?
February 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21 at 7 PM
Civility. What is it good for? What is it anyhow?
Can we recognize it in our age of shaming, degrading, and vilifying?
What is the root of civility from a theological perspective?
Is civility worth fighting for?
Tom will argue that civility matters and that there is a deep root system for civil practices found in ancient paths.
Not only that, there’s an art of relating to to others that even “trumps” civility.
What could that be? The answer may surprise you.
Come join the civil (!) conversation. Enjoy the best coffee and light fare, and meet some new people.
Tom Becker studied for his Bachelor of Science in Speech and Communication at Bloomsburg University of PA and earned his Master of Divinity from Covenant Theological Seminary, focusing on Christianity and Contemporary Culture through the Francis A. Schaeffer Institute.
He founded The Row House, Inc. in 2010 as a way to commend the merits of the Christian faith to a public audience through stellar speakers, great food, civil discourse, and a dash of whimsy.
He is a licensed minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and attends Wheatland PCA with his wife Becky. They live in Lancaster’s West End with their Border Collie Mix, Rue. Five grown children call Lancaster, Philadelphia, and Denver home.
Tom is also a certified Town Character and can usually be seen atop two-wheeled contraptions in the city. He follows the Philadelphia Sixers closely, loves Podunk places and Mom ‘n Pop shops, and enjoys making pizza, dancing vigorously, and maintaining more than one Instagram account.
