Partnership for Global Justice PROGRAM:

Spirituality in the Global Village
In a time of Paradox, a Spirituality of Paradox

As the strange becomes familiar and the known surprising, we are rapidly creating a new world.  Distance and limitations are fast disappearing.

  • What are the challenges and possibilities offered by the current process of globalization – a process which is progressively eroding boundaries, differences and traditions?
  • What response does this new world call for and what form of spirituality can motivate, sustain, and refresh global citizens as they labor for global justice?

This program will involve presenter and participants in listening and dialogue, attempting to respond to such significant questions for our world today.

Topics of the Workshop

This workshop is designed to provide a reflection on the current global situation and the spirituality it demands. Using prayer, discussion, exercises, film, and lecture, we will address:

  • Current World Situation:
    • Poverty and wealth; pollution, conflict and inequality
  • Catholic Social Teaching (optional)
  • Emerging Vision of Connectedness:
    • Science, politics, ecosystems, religion, spirituality
  • Obstacles to Insight
  • Spirituality for a Global Citizen
  • Action for Justice: personal and communal
  • Working with the United Nations (optional)

For whom is this program designed?

  • Anyone who feels overwhelmed or pressured by the immensity of the global task of justice.
  • Those involved in justice and peace ministry who experience a desire or a need to nourish a spirituality which supports the justice ministry.
  • Anyone who desires to connect the experience of living in today’s global village with the challenge of living as spiritual citizens rooted in the presence of God.
  • Men and women members of religious congregations, social justice committees, parish groups, campus ministry groups, faculty
