Thursday Satsang: Peace, Protest, and Spirituality with Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer on April 27, 2017

Peace, Protest, and Spirituality with Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer on April 27, 2017

There is no single pathway to express and faithfully live out one’s faith, understanding and experience of God, or spirituality.  Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer will share some of his experience as a person of faith committed to peacemaking and social justice.  A central question for me is how I (and each of us) define and seek to live an authentic life in light of what we experience and know.  For me it is here that spirituality intersects with issues of war and peace, hunger and poverty, beauty and joy, activism informed by mindfulness.
