Embracing our Sacred Humanity with Dr. Gail C. Christopher
Absalom Jones Episcopal Center for Racial Healing * Saturday, May 5 * 9 - 10 a.m.

There is a wound in the soul of America, and faith communities must now lead in helping us to heal that wound. The wound is a consciousness that embraces and nurtures hate; while refuting compassion. It is rooted in the antiquated belief in a false hierarchy of human value; a belief America cannot allow to persist in the 21st century. Dr. Gail C. Christopher is an award-winning change agent widely recognized for designing holistic strategies for social change. She is the former senior advisor and vice president of the WK Kellogg Foundation and past executive director of The Institute for Government Innovation at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. This talk will draw from decades of experience as a social change agent to explore practical approaches to overcoming hate and embracing our sacred interconnected humanity.  Register here
