Renewing the Work of Reconciliation: A Lenten Forum Series

February 28 @ 10:00 AM

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 AM on Sunday, repeating until March 21, 2021

People often use the word, “reconciliation,” and our Scriptures tell us that, through Christ we have been “reconciled to God” and given the “ministry of reconciliation.” (2 Corinthians 5:18). But what does reconciliation mean and what does it involve? In the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, reconciliation was understood to be a way for communities to acknowledge and address past harms and injustice in order to walk into a new future together. Drawing from this past work, we have asked faith leaders to offer what they believe is the meaning and work of reconciliation today.

Speakers:

February 21: The Very Rev. John Witcombe, Dean of Coventry Cathedral

February 28: The Rt. Reverend Bonnie Perry, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan

March 7 & March 14: The Rev. Dr. Michael Battle, Herbert Thompson Professor of Church and Society and Director of the Desmond Tutu Center at General Theological Seminary

March 21: The Rt. Rev. Dr. Shannon MacVean-Brown, Bishop of the Diocese of Vermont

March 28: The Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers, Canon to the Presiding Bishop for Evangelism, Reconciliation and Creation Care

All are welcome to join us for a 6-week conversation with distinguished faith leaders as they offer their views and experiences!
