As we reflect this week on the life of STH alum Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., many of us are asking what might it look like for seminary students today to take their theological studies out in the world to build Beloved Community? "Stars in the Darkness: Life After Seminary For Modern Day Prophets"
will be a conversation on the changing face of social justice work and the value of theological education. We are excited to welcome five amazing panelists who are all creating justice in prophetic and creative ways to share about how their studies in theology inform their work in the world. Our guests include:
Manikka Bowman - Cambridge School Committee
Ricardo Franco - Latino Protestant Congregations Project
Erin Freeborn - Communities for Restorative Justice
Bernadette Hickman-Maynard - Bethel AME Church & Greater Boston Interfaith Organization
Vernon J. Walker - Boston Rescue Mission & Bridge Over Troubled Waters
This will be a great opportunity for current students to find out more about what it can practically look like to live out the legacy of the School of the Prophets in our modern time.
The event will start at 5:30p with a reception & light food, followed by a panel discussion and conversation.
Co-hosted by the Office of the Dean for Community Life, the Religion & Conflict Transformation Program, & the Association of Black Seminarians
