It is a moral imperative to train social justice leaders how to mindfully harness the generative power of the imagination – to see the world through the eyes of another. This interactive and spiritually nurturing workshop will empower social justice leaders to use the moral imagination to achieve true transformation. ~ Rev. Nate Walker offered this presentation on Saturday, 25 June 2011 at the General Assembly of Unitarian Universalist Congregations.
Unitarian Laura Matilda Towne, a white woman, established the first school for freed slaves months after the Civil War began. After her death in 1901, the Penn School continued as a beacon for racial justice. How did the abolitionist ministry of Priestly and Furness influence Towne? How does her story influence us? ~ Panel Presentation delivered on Thursday, June 23, 2011 at the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations.
