We Are Called – Responding to Social Justice Issues in Today’s Social/Political Climate
This weekend event offers time for nurturing your spirit in the midst of chaotic times, connecting with others who are also trying to make a difference, and exploring how to respond by framing your issues Biblically. We will begin Friday evening by grounding ourselves in faith and spend the weekend learning and sharing practices with one another for activism and nurture.

Leading us through the weekend …
Since November 2016, Jen has been writing the Americans of Conscience action checklist to an engaged list of over 70,000 subscribers and growing. With diplomacy, sincerity, and heart, she helps fellow conflict-averse introverts, pissed-off wise women, and even moderate Republicans become engaged in their democracy.
Jen will show us how to stay on the path of social justice both soulfully and sustainably, using inspiration while also offering ways to apply the concept(s) in real life.
Rev. Kevin and Carol Seckel
Kevin and Carol Seckel are both retired Methodist ministers with a long and fascinating career that literally took them all over the world. They began their ministry serving Native Americans in the Klamath basin; served as co-spiritual life directors of Alaska Children’s Services in the Alaska Missionary Conference (Anchorage and Sitka); and ministered in Latvia and Germany. Kevin’s last assignment was to start an English-speaking International congregation in Frankfurt, while Carol was Coordinator of Migrant and International work for the Methodist Church in Germany.
There is a basic Biblical principle that makes the claim that human beings were originally created in some manner by a God. And God desires a connection with human beings.In my time with this event I hope to help the participants visualize this connective principle, and become more aware of the engagement with the “other.”
“I'm so happy you are planning this event—I think it's really needed at this time. In fact, I think that gathering with intention might be the most important thing we can be doing as activists.”
