Wake Up Running: A vision for connection and transformation
Join us for the ICJS Manekin-Clark Annual Lecture. Dr. Walter Earl Fluker—drawing on the inspiration of his mentor, the renowned theologian Howard Thurman—calls on us to meet this new moment by remembering, retelling, and reliving our stories on the ultimate path to liberation. Dr. Fluker challenges us as communities to adopt a stance of interreligious congregating, conjuring, and conspiring at the crossings where these encounters, and even conflicts, take place as a means of achieving social justice, equity, and transformation.
