Lecture: Justin Sabia-Tanis, Justice & Joy

Justin

Justice & Joy: Social Transformation as Spiritual Practice
Justin Sabia-Tanis, Assistant Professor of Christian Ethics and Social Transformation Supported by The McVay Endowment and Program Director for Social Transformation

Our sacred traditions set before us visions of a just and peaceful future—a world it is increasingly urgent to create if we are to survive. This lecture will consider how viewing our work for social justice as a practice of faith can lead us to greater spiritual depth and meaning in our lives and how our spirituality sustains us to engage in long term, effective, and meaningful work for justice. We will look at why faith calls us to do the work of transformation and how this leads to both justice and joy.
