"Workshop: "Social Justice Teaching and Singing — Lessons from Harriet Tubman and Dietrich Bonhoeffer"" by Karen Brau

05/22/2018 11:00AM—Luther Place Memorial Church

Presenter: Karen Brau

Title: "Social Justice Teaching and Singing — Lessons from Harriet Tubman and Dietrich Bonhoeffer"

At Luther Place Church in the sanctuary there are 4 newer stained glass windows — Martin Luther and Martin Luther King Jr. are pictured on the Vermont Ave side of the building and Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Harriet Tubman on the 14th St side.  The unlikely pair of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Harriet Tubman look out together over the top of the pulpit and into the congregation.  The pair lived on different continents and in mostly different centuries, yet  both offer an incarnational witness that resisted evil and acted out freedom.  Come and participate in a workshop that has us singing and reflecting on converging teachings from two prophets that continue to inspire us for the challenges of our day.
