Setting A Welcome Table
Adrian Miller To Lead Palm Sunday Justice Breakfast
Adrian Miller – food writer, attorney, certified barbecue judge and the executive director of the Colorado Council of Churches – will be the guest speaker at Montview Boulevard Presbyterian’s annual Palm Sunday Justice Breakfast on April 9.
Miller will speak on “Setting a Welcome Table” during the program, which begins at 9:15 a.m. at the church, at 1980 Dahlia St. The discussion is expected to touch on ways to create safe and sacred spaces where people of faith can listen to other perspectives, build and maintain relationships, and work together on vital social justice issues.
Miller is the first African American and the first layperson to hold the position leading the Colorado Council of Churches. He previously served as a White House special assistant to President Bill Clinton and a senior policy analyst for Colorado governor Bill Ritter Jr. Miller’s Soul Food: The Surprising Story of an American Cuisine, One Plate at a Time won the James Beard Foundation Award for Scholarship and Reference in 2014. His book, The President’s Kitchen Cabinet: The Story of the African Americans Who Have Fed Our First Families, from the Washingtons to the Obamas, was published earlier this year.
