Saturday, February 3rd - Smith Room, Trinity Episcopal Church
Welcome and Warmup (song & prayer)
Michelle Alexander; A public conversation with the author of The New Jim Crow about the values that fuel her work and how values help create movements for change
Valuing the Story
Pádraig Ó Tuama, poet, author, and leader of the Corrymeela Community will explore stories where values emerge, bump into each other, conflict, and create opportunities for deep dialogue about important values in contemporary life. We will look at values in action, and values in tension.
Values and Voices: Speaking Out in Public Spheres
Deirdre Good, Andrea Weiss, and Adnan A. Zulfiqar describe a national non-partisan campaign, American Values Religious Voices, that brought together scholars from a diverse range of religious traditions to articulate core American values after the national election.
Playing Politics vs Incubating Justice: Witnessing to The Queer Power of God
Elizabeth Edman, priest and political strategist, sees our job as people of faith as being to show the world that the power of God is a real thing – to make it plainly, graphically, authentically visible in the world. For our commitment to justice to have any impact — for our values to translate into action — we must do something harder: we must cultivate this commitment as virtue. We must live it.
Wrap Up with Mark Bozzuti-Jones & Winnie Varghese
Priests, authors, and Trinity Church Wall Street’s directors of Core Values and Justice & Reconciliation lead us in reflecting on how we put values into action.
