Ubuntu: Spirit of Solidarity Series on Zoom

Meets Oct. 31, Nov. 7, 14, 21, 28 and Dec. 5 & 12 (Class schedule around Thanksgiving Holiday TBD)
Ubuntu or “I am because we are” is defined by the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu as, “My humanity is caught up, is inextricably bound up, in… yours.” To live the principle of Ubuntu in our modern world is to recognize the humanity of others and to love our neighbors as ourselves.
The past few years have been filled with the spiritual and emotional challenges of a global pandemic, racial injustice, migration issues and violence. Have you been looking for a safe place to discuss and explore the impacts on your life and your faith? Through books, articles, videos and participants’ discussion, this 6-week virtual course offers a lively and challenging exploration of the spirit of “solidarity” in the 21st century. Together we will listen to St. Francis’ story and share our own stories as well as the struggles and challenges and joys of solidarity. And as Pope Francis encourages, we will strive together for an understanding of the common good and “to foster a Spirit of Solidarity.”
This is a virtual course so you will need to be able to access the course through the Zoom application. Once you register, you will receive instructions for your participation in the virtual course. You will also receive assignment instructions to have ready for the first session.
FEE: $95 including books. Pre-registration required. Registration closes at noon on Oct. 28, 2022. No registrations will be accepted after that date.
