From Problem to Promise: Reframing Social Issues
The world is in profound need of healing. Headlines are filled with critical issues which demonstrate our brokenness – racism, climate change, police brutality, voting rights, sexism, gun violence, health care access, affordable housing, white supremacy, LGBTQ equity and inclusion, reparations, and treaty rights to name just a few. How do we, as spiritual people, engage these issues as opportunities to deliver on promises that reflect our deepest spiritual values and commitments?
Join a lively conversation with Rev. Dr. Steve Newcom, founding director of the Kaleo Center for Faith, Justice and Social Transformation, on Thursday, March 24 at noon (CST). Steve will provide a brief overview of Sevenfold, a model of social transformation which reframes our work for justice from problems to be solved to the Promises we Serve. Sevenfold integrates seven dimensions of social transformation into a user-friendly framework designed to deepen our understanding of what is really going on and strategically align action for transformational impact.
An extended discussion will be offered for those interested in continuing the discussion from 1:00-1:30pm CST.
