Description: God calls everybody into closer relationship with God; God calls everybody to work for social justice. In this retreat, we’ll explore the interconnection of work for social justice with some of the great Christian mystics, in the contexts of four great liberatory movements: environmental justice, feminism, racial justice, and LGBTQ justice. In each, we’ll explore the insight of a Christian mystic, and then consider the contemporary challenge. The aim is personal: how are WE called into the transformation of the world and into the mysticism that sustains it?
