Our featured speaker for the May 14th Common Purpose event is Don Plummer. He will be speaking on the topic of “Alternatives to the Death Penalty”. Don’s coverage of crime shaped his understanding of the death penalty, an understanding that he will share with us.
Don Plummer was a newspaper reporter, editor and bureau chief for nearly 30 years, including working at AJC from 1992 until 2006, covering crime and the justice system. Next Don served as Public Information Officer for the Fulton County Superior Court becoming an innovator in the use of social media. Since 2012, Don has been the Media and Community Relations Director for the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta. Don adds, “I am honored to make known the role of The Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta as Jesus’ hands and feet in middle and north Georgia. It continues to be my pleasure to introduce the work of the people of the diocese as they draw the circle wider to include all who seek a fuller spiritual life.”
Please join us from 6:00 to 8:00pm in Jeffords hall for a pot luck dinner and Agape meal followed by the program and small group discussion. To request childcare, please contact commonpurpose@stdavidchurch.org by May 9.
