At Pacific School of Religion, we are called to respond to God’s promise of wholeness, love, and justice for the earth and all its people. As a community of scholars and activists, we seek to expand the circle of social innovators and spiritual formation to transform the world.
As someone committed to creating change through spiritual engagement and practice, you are invited to join us in developing new cutting-edge approaches to creating a world of abundance where all can thrive and flourish. Join us on March 7-8, 2014 for “Extraordinary Callings,” the inaugural symposium of PSR’s new Center for Spiritual and Social Transformation. (Learn more about the Center here.)
Featuring an address by Dr. Cornel West, panel discussions with leading social and spiritual innovators, and conversations with Pacific School of Religion faculty and alums, this unique convening will inspire new networks of spiritually-rooted social change and envision new strategies for effective social transformation. Dr. Mimi Silbert, of the Delancey Street Foundation, will be our closing plenary speaker.
Seats are limited and will fill up fast!
