Event description

Description

We need to develop a theological, political, and ethical critique that can support our faithful action and ground us as we bring the border back to the center of the nation’s attention. We need time together to breathe the air of the borderlands, listen to the stories of the people there, and space to walk the soil. We need a theology of place.

Join justice organizers, theologians, scholars of religion, clergy, and students in El Paso, TX, for a learning immersion in the borderlands, Wed. Sept. 5 - Sat., Sept. 8.
