Contemplative Activism

Mondays at noon (beginning February 22 and going through April). We will be reflecting on how we can be active in responding to the challenges of citizenship. The nature of prayerful protest, spiritual leadership in politics and community life, and prophetic healing. We will be studying Bruce Epperly’s recently published book, Mystics in Action: 12 Saints for Today, which focuses on persons such as Dag Hammarskjold, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Dorothy Day, Oscar Romero, Simone Weil, Abraham Joshua Heschel. Peace Pilgrim, Martin Luther King, and others.
