In light of the most recent presidential election, some faith communities have struggled to find the tools to amplify their voices about the most pressing issues facing our nation. Over the first 100 days of the new Presidential administration, Faith Matters Network, in partnership with the Scarritt Bennett Center and Vanderbilt Divinity School, will be hosting a series of critical public theology retreats geared toward empowering clergy and laypeople to speak out about three of the most contentious political issues in our public life: racial justice, immigration, and climate change.  

Using storytelling and art, dream-mapping, and strategic planning, this series hopes to add depth and hold creative space for people of faith to engage in justice issues and organizing from their faith contexts.
