Rev. Stephen Handy and Bishop Graves will discuss what positional authority, personal awareness, trauma, confession, and repentance have to do with preaching justice. We will hear about sermon preparation that expands our perspective and living a life of justice that goes beyond the pulpit. Clergy will spend time in virtual small groups processing all of these things together as well.
