Monday Night Alive presents community Easter celebration

Monday Night Alive will present a community Easter celebration Sunday morning, April 4 at 10 a.m. at Cartwright Park.

“Join us as we celebrate Easter,” invited organizers. “If you’ve been wondering where God is in the midst of all that is going and have been looking with disbelief at events going on in the world and looking for hope, join us for a message of hope and inspiration for the community from the Rev. Dr. Michelle Lewis. The message she will deliver on Sunday is, ‘The Disciples Didn’t Believe it Either…’ This will be a socially distanced event.”

Lewis is the founder of the Peace Garden Project. She graduated from Yale with a Master of Environmental Science and a Master of Divinity and in 2013 she became the first person of color to complete the joint degree program in religion and the environment at Yale.

As a public theologian, she has produced a podcast and radio show called “Unpacking Faith” that examines how people of differing faiths view national and world events. She has also traveled as a part of an invited delegation to Saudi Arabia to work on Christian and Muslim interactions.

Lewis’s work has taken her to the United Nations, where she served as an advisor to the Federated States of Micronesia, where she focused on climate policy and climate finance. She served as the mayoral appointment the New Rochelle Sustainability Commission and as the chair of the Environmental Justice Committee for the NAACP in New Haven, Conn.

Lewis is an international teacher and preacher of the gospel who believes in the humanity and dignity of all people. She has pastored churches in New York, Connecticut and North Carolina. She is the former pastor of Mighty Wind United Methodist Church and associate pastor of Mount Olivet United Methodist Church in Manteo.
