After this bizarre election that has unleashed so much hate, we will need some time for healing and reflection.
To be really honest, my spirit is pretty wounded. And if my conversations and Facebook feed is any indication, I’m not the only one experiencing a deep pain about the future of our society.
The day after Election Day, I want to be with my multifaith justice family — people like you — to start the work of healing our collective spirits so that we can be strengthened in our advocacy for a better world.
Join me and your friends at Auburn, along with faith leaders, organizers, and supporters of the multifaith movements for justice in Washington Square Park at 3pm on Wed., Nov. 9 for “Songs for the Soul.”
We’ll sing together, dance together, and invite those passersby in the Square to join us for a moment of prophetic respite and healing following an election season where hate took center stage.
After singing together in the Park, you are invited to the Meeting Hall at Judson Memorial Church (one block away) from 4-6pm. We’ll continue to sing, build relationships, pray and process together, and strengthen our spirits for the road ahead. Light refreshments will be provided.
Whether or not you can join us, please know that we are right there with you, advocating for an American society that values all of its people, proclaiming that we can build a society based on love and justice as core values, and accompanying you on the journey.
We are rooting for you, grateful for you. And on the day after this tumultuous Election, we want to be with you, too.
I hope to see you on Wednesday. Please reply to this email with any questions about the event, or to get involved as an organizing partner alongside Auburn Seminary, Judson Memorial Church, Middle Collegiate Church, Lab/Shul, and The Religious Institute.
Now, let’s get back to work.
