Day of Reflection: Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
January 18 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm$65
Directed by Terresa Ford, MFA
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a multi-faceted man of God embodying Ignatian ideas such as contemplation and action. He fought for basic human rights for African Americans, the poor and the disenfranchised all of which stemmed from his deep spirituality. Come contemplate his legacy which extends to us all regardless of race, economic standing or title and reflect on your call in the movement for social justice. This morning of reflection will include guided reflections on his life with opportunities for silence and contemplation. Participants are encouraged to bring a journal.
Check-in begins at 8:30 am. Enjoy some coffee and light refreshments before the program begins in the Chapel promptly at 9am. Lunch will be served in the dining room at mid-day.
