CEIO invites you to a remarkable two day Deeper Change Forum with the theologian, educator, veteran of the civil rights movement, and activist - Ruby Nell Sales on January 25th and 26th at the Unitarian Society of New Haven.
Sister Ruby's work is grounded in the belief that social justice is spiritual formation. She warns us that:
"We live in a world where we are being overwhelmed by the spiritual malformation of a people who place materialism as the highest good and who are addicted and possessed by an insatiable hunger for materialism and power that has not been able to be satisfied by invasions, by stealing land, by genocide by cultural appropriation by killing the earth and all of the natural resources in the earth."
Ruby will guide us over two days as we focus on restoring and maintaining "wholeness" of the inner and outer soul.
SCHEDULE AT A GLANCE
DAY 1 (8:30 - 3:00) - Morning: Speech by Ruby Sales with Q&A -- LUNCH -- Afternoon: Application and Conversation
DAY 2 - Workshop (8:30 - 3:00): Building a Movement Toward Wholeness: How do we change the inner and outer structure of movements? (SPACE LIMITED TO 80)
***Please note that Day 2 "Building a Movement Toward Wholeness" with Sister Ruby Sales is a workshop limited to up to 80 participants.
Day 2 will build upon Day 1, therefore participation in the 1st day is a requirement for those signing up for the Day 2 workshop. Confirmation for those admitted into the Day 2 workshop will emailed on January 8th, 2018.
We are making a commitment to offer this experience and ask that those confirmed to attend commit to being present for the entirety.
I believe that this year's Forums will help us to face the ugly truths of our society and to boldly express our deepest yearnings for liberation.This year's forums call us to collective action and in my deepest prayer, to unapologetically loving each other into wholeness. We look forward to being in community with you!
See You There!
