“And Then I Come Home: Sustaining Our Commitment to Social Justice”

August 30, 2020 | 9:00 am


Online Only at 9:00 a.m.:

Summer service is livestreamed at 9:00 a.m. for the safety and health of our congregation. To watch Sunday’s service, CLICK HERE.

Today’s Topic:

We become energized and motivated by the plight of disadvantaged people around the world. There is a surge of concern and action. Then we move on with our daily lives or the next urgent issue presses for our attention.

I have had the wonderful experience of photographing people in marginalized situations all over the world. Their struggles are ongoing and often generational. But, then I come home. I will explore my own reflections of sustaining creative energy and commitment to social justice, as well as thoughts of others who successfully remain energized to a cause.
