Steve Stockman lands in the U.S. this week for his 2014 Midwest tour starting Wednesday evening, March 26, at the University of Dayton.
U2 fans may know his name–he’s the author of Walk On: The Spiritual Journey of U2, an engaging, entertaining, and informative look at how U2 have let their faith and their art intersect. If so, you may also know he’s a minister based in Belfast–which means folks in the States don’t often get a chance to catch up with him in person. And, you may know he has an interest in popular music, faith, and culture beyond the sounds of just U2.
Stocki, or Stoxo, as we like to affectionately call him, will speak in three Ohio cities: Dayton, Norwood (within Cincinnati’s city limits), and Delaware, on a variety of topics related to faith, music, social justice and Northern Ireland.
His talks in Dayton and Delaware are free and open to the public, but his talk in Norwood is for a great neighborhood-strengthening cause. Stocki’s talk–“There Is No Them, There Is Only Us”–supports Woven Oak Initiatives and has tickets still available. (If you buy a ticket online, you are entered into a drawing for a singed copy of Walk On.)
