“Reparations and Soul Repair” – Rev. Molly Housh Gordon

If power is the ability to act, then our power is deeply affected by our resources. What do we do about the truth of history that many have been systemically robbed of resources and thus power? What joyful redistribution of shared power could we find through the exercise of reparations? And what does all this mean for the well-being of our souls?

Children are very welcome. There will be plenty of stops along the way. For more information, email Peter Holmes.
