Spirituality and Social Justice
WEEK 1 July 10-15
In this workshop we will explore the deep connections between spiritual life and action “out” in the world. We will interrogate the idea of a gap between “inside” and “outside,” explore ways to ground our activism in love and faith, and discern our personal paths toward work for social justice.
