Event description
A Spiritual Walk Through the Woods with Sojourner Truth

About this Event

Sojourner Truth was raised in Ulster County on the Hudson River, and told Olive Gilbert (1850 The Narrative of Sojourner Truth) that she led a “wild, out of doors life.” Using poetic prose, Rev Dele opens our spiritual imagination to that life in nature and speaks to ways Sojourner’s spiritual journey may continue to liberate our thoughts and life on this land.

Sojourner’s father was also tall and nicknamed “Tree.” We will see what wisdom sprouted from her father as well as from the spruce, balsam fir, red cedar, yellow birch, oak, hickory, and pines among which she walked and grew.

Rev Dele – a visionary pastor, author and grandmother – will read excerpts from her upcoming children’s book on Sojourner Truth and answer questions about her research and discoveries.
