The Connection between Politics and Spirituality
Holy Wisdom Monastery is hosting a series of programs (April 10, May 1, October 9, October 30, 2018) designed to explore the interface between politics and the spiritual convictions that undergird our commitment to peace, justice and equality. Regardless of whether or not we identify ourselves with a particular religious tradition, being a person of faith in today’s politically divisive climate means honoring our responsibilities to one another, the environment, our country and our world. Come for one or more sessions.
Each program will begin with prayer and dinner, followed by speakers, resource sharing and opportunities for dialogue and discussion. The programs will promote an understanding of why the most important role in our government—as former President Obama pointed out—is the role of Citizen.
