"An Irresistible Sense of Mission"
Revs. Kathleen McTigue & Abhi Janamanchi
Worship Associate: Suzanne Pineau
Some of the most powerful movements for social justice have been inspired and sustained by religious faith and practice. Many of us yearn to bring our justice commitments into deeper conversation with our spiritual lives, to find that same inspiration and sustenance. How might we learn do this, individually and together -- and what difference can it make? Abhi and Kathleen will reflect on their recent trip to the US-Mexico border.
