From Contemplation to Compassionate Social Action: The Creative Encounter of Howard Thurman

What does it mean to be a freed human spirit? Join us for a day journeying through the life and writings of Howard Thurman (spiritual adviser to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) and dipping into his contemplative practices. We will explore how this mystic and theologian emerged from Baptist beginnings to become a model and teacher of sacred activism. In addition, Howard Thurman’s transformational experiences with God and his classic book, Jesus and the Disinherited, highlight the living wisdom he espoused that continues to nourish our spirits today.
