Aim High: Exploring the Intersection of Sprituality and Social Change

February 5, 2019 | 4 - 5 pm | Alumni Memorial Union, Room 227

Peace is a goal that is never fully realized in this world, but making it your own goal anyway opens a beautiful door onto the greatest of adventures. Anyone can go on this adventure, and everyone is invited. All kinds of people have traveled that way before you, and despite what the world tells you, you will not find yourself alone.

Chaplain Rabia Terri Harris, founder of the Muslim Peace Fellowship and co-founder of the multireligious Community of Living Traditions, has spent 40 years in the study of personal and social transformation. What might you discover at the intersection of spirituality and social change?

Please register. This event is part of Mission Week 2019.

Inclusion & Human Rights: The Way to Peace

February 6, 2019 | 12 - 1 pm | Alumni Memorial Union, Room 227

Forced displacement is one of the most challenging issues the world faces today. This exodus--caused by war, persecution, and climate change--has forced millions of people to leave their homes in search of refuge and safety. The way to peace invites us to mainstream the practice of inclusiveness and the respect for human rights.

Fr. Cedric Prakash, S.J., founder of Prashant, the Jesuit Centre for Human Rights, Justice and Peace, is a human rights activist and peacemaker from India who recently completed a three-year stint with Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) Middle East North Africa (MENA) in Beirut, Lebanon. JRS MENA supports refugees and displaced peoples in Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and Iraq.

His address is part of the Soup with Substance speaker series. A light meal of soup and bread will be served.

Please register. This event is part of Mission Week 2019.
