We are seeking workshop proposals for Prophetic Imagination 2020.
Our world is in crisis. Fascism and right wing nationalism are on the rise as we experience the environmental and social impacts of climate change. The Giant Triplets of Evil named by Dr. King (militarism, racism, and economic exploitation) run rampant across the globe.
Nevertheless, to paraphrase the words of Jesus: “the Revolution of God is at Hand!” The Spirit is birthing a new world in the shell of the old. As Thomas Merton once wrote to his discouraged friend Daniel Berrigan: “Do not be discouraged. The Holy Spirit is not asleep.”
As we near the 2020 elections, we need to look beyond who occupies the White House or congressional seat and ask ourselves what does liberation look like? How do we participate with the Spirit to subvert systems of oppression and death as we cultivate a just world?
Gathering together scholars, activists, artists, and spiritual leaders, our 2020 conference will bring together deep analysis, spiritual wisdom, and lived-experience to discern a revolutionary path amidst global crises.
Are you an activist who sees the connection between inner transformation and social change? An artist creating and reflecting the struggle for life? A spiritual leader challenging the myths of empire? If you’re working at the intersection of spirituality and resistance, we welcome you to submit an idea for a talk, conversation, workshop, art installation or whatever you would like to offer.
If you’d like to present at the conference please use the form below. The deadline to submit is July 1st.
