Bayard Rustin - Growing Spiritually by Taking Risks

 We will explore the intersection of risk and spiritual development by examining the life of Bayard Rustin and the actions he took to promote his vision of racial justice and equality in a very difficult time. We will use this as a jumping off point for small group discussions on our own risk taking as it relates to our spiritual growth. When is risk “rightly-ordered? When is it possible for us to discern the risks we are called to act upon? How do we help others to discern when a risk is worth taking?  Please join us for a provocative activity that will challenge and enlighten.
