David M. Bailey to Deliver Michael Lester Wendt Character Lecture Virtually

Jan 14, 2021 | University Relations staff

DUBUQUE, Iowa – The University of Dubuque’s Wendt Center for Character Education will host its spring Michael Lester Wendt Character Lecture virtually at 6:00 p.m. Monday, Feb. 1, 2021.

David M. Bailey, a public theologian and culture-maker focused on community reconciliation, will present “What to do in Red Sea Moments.” He will share how, by looking at the past, people can learn from ways others have innovatively engaged in racial justice and healing through reconciling culture making.

The virtual lecture is free to attend and open to the public. However, space is limited. To register for the virtual lecture, please visit www.dbq.edu/Wendt.

An active speaker, consultant, and strategist on topics including cultural intelligence and reconciliation, Bailey curates transformative experiences that foster flourishing communities. He believes that Christian communities should be a foretaste of the reconciled Kingdom that is to come.

Bailey is the CEO and founder of Arrabon, an organization that builds reconciling communities in the midst of a digital, diverse, and divided word. He also founded Urban Doxology, a ministry of Arrabon that uses music as a vehicle in pursuit of reconciliation. Bailey is co-author of the Race, Class, and the Kingdom of God Study Series and executive producer of the documentary 11am: Hope for America’s Most Segregated Hour.

Bailey is rooted at East End Fellowship in his hometown of Richmond, Virginia, and he serves on the preaching team. He hopes his work will help Richmond, the former Capital of the Confederacy, to instead become known as the Capital of Reconciliation.
