Truth School – Guided by the Spirit: How Faith Motivates and Sustains Social Activism

November 4 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Guided by the Spirit: How Faith Motivates and Sustains Social Activism-

People of faith often report that their faith motivated them to become active in social movements for justice, equity, peace, and earth stewardship. Others say that it is their faith that sustains them as they engage in the hard work of standing up for the values of inclusion, equality, fairness, compassion, and generosity. In this gathering, open to people of all faiths and to those who do not ascribe to any faith but are curious, questioning, or seeking, we will discuss how we experience spiritual energy moving through our lives, what compels us to work for change in this beautiful but broken world, and where we find sustenance, hope, and the strength to be active in struggles for peace, justice, care of creation, and the civil rights and civil liberties for all people. Highly interactive and all are welcome!

Trainer: Rev. Dr. Karen-Louise Rucks, Associate Minister, Alden Baptist Church, and Executive Director of Advancement, Quinsigamond Community College, Worcester, MA
