  • “For Such a Time as This”: Author Talk and Book Signing with Reverend Sharon Risher
    11:00 am-1:00 pm
    Jun-15-19

    68 Calhoun Street Charleston, SC 29401

    68 Calhoun Street Charleston, SC 29401

    The instant her phone rang, Reverend Sharon Risher sensed something was horribly wrong. Something had happened at Emanuel AME Church, the church of her youth in Charleston, and she knew her mother was likely at Bible study in the church. Even before she heard the news, her chaplain’s instinct told her the awful truth: her mother was dead, along with two cousins. What Risher couldn’t imagine was that they had been murdered by a white supremacist. Plunged into the depths of mourning, anger and shock, she could have wallowed in the pain. Instead, she chose the path of forgiveness and hope – eventually forgiving the convicted killer for his crime. “For Such a Time as This: Hope and Forgiveness after the Charleston Massacre” is Risher’s powerful memoir of faith, family and loss. Copies of the book will be available to purchase at the event.

    After the murder of his wife during the Charleston church shooting, Anthony Thompson chose to publicly and privately forgive the shooter. Though many questioned his reasoning, the community response radically changed as people witnessed his act of forgiveness. Thompson’s book, “Called to Forgive: The Charleston Church Shooting, a Victim’s Husband, and the Path to Healing and Peace” is a poignant account that shows how forgiveness can affect our lives, communities, and even our nation.
