Mission Experience 20'

Each year students select a subject to study. During the 2019-2020 academic year we studied social justice and faith. We began by learning about Liberation Theology and that loving God, but not your neighbor can not coexist. During Spring Break, students faculty and staff traveled to Montgomery, Selma, and Birmingham Alabama . While in Alabama the students and staff explored the issue of mass incarceration, racism, and voter suppression. The sites included The Legacy Museum, The Birmingham Civil Rights Museum, 16th Street Baptist Church, The Peace and Justice Memorial, and the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Students will complete a panel discussion with local clergy to answer the question how our faith calls us to respond to injustice.
