A Conversation on Faith
September 17, 2017
St. John’s Episcopal Church
In anticipation of our upcoming annual Spirit of Georgetown benefit, GMC is hosting “A Conversation on Faith,” a book event with author, longtime Washingtonian, and host of the 2017 Spirit of Georgetown, Sally Quinn. Please join us on the evening of September 17th from 7:00-8:30pm at Saint John’s Georgetown for refreshments and an enlightening Q&A discussion on Sally’s new book, “Finding Magic: A Spiritual Memoir.” The discussion, led by leading public intellectual, Leon Wieseltier, will touch upon how our various faiths unite us and shape our views on how to care for those less fortunate, as is GMC’s mission.
Both tickets to the 2017 Spirit of Georgetown and copies of “Finding Magic” will be for sale at the event and Sally will be available for book signing after the Q&A discussion.
Please RSVP on our Eventbrite page if you plan to attend. We look forward to seeing you there!

K Street NW between Wisconsin Avenue and Thomas Jefferson Street
Washington, D.C.’s most anticipated epicurean festival will be celebrating its 24th year with creative tastes from more than 30 of the neighborhood’s best restaurants. This year, guests will be able to enjoy beer and wine as they stroll from booth to booth. This foodie event takes place in the heart of Georgetown, on K Street NW, between Wisconsin Avenue and Thomas Jefferson Street and along the scenic Georgetown Waterfront.
This longstanding event in Georgetown benefits Georgetown Ministry Center’s mission to support the homeless. The event began over 20 years ago by Grace Episcopal Church in Georgetown and its former Rector David Bird and member Robert Egger, who went on to found DC Central Kitchen.
