Tuesday Table Talk: Weaving Hope -- A Conversation On Interconnectedness (In-Person)
- Tuesday 09/26/2023
- 6:00pm - 8:30pm EST
In a real sense all life is inter-related. All [people] are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be... This is the inter-related structure of reality.
― Martin Luther King Jr., Letter from Birmingham Jail
Join us in person for an interfaith Tuesday Table Talk on September 26, at 6:00 pm, as we gather for food and conversation. We will break bread together over a simple meal of soup, salad, and bread at Dominican Center Marywood at Aquinas College.
Let's have a conversation about interconnectedness. Many cultures and wisdom traditions have given language to this idea of being woven together or bound up in shared mutuality with our neighbors. Engage in a facilitated discussion, and learn from diverse perspectives on our interconnectedness as human beings as an imperative for justice and equity. Together we will discuss the barriers that disrupt or distort human connection as we lean into the teachings and traditions that move us to action. If our life and wellbeing are inextricably tied to the wider human family, then our shared future requires us to dream of and work towards a better world, weaving hope together.
Bring a friend!
