America and the Fantastic Hegemonic Imagination
This morning, we’ll tackle what womanist ethicist Emilie M. Townes calls “the fantastic hegemonic imagination," and explore how The Doctrine of Discovery, Manifest Destiny, and the cultural constructs of race have created the United States as we know it.

The Retelling of an Impossible Story
with Rabbi Olivier BenHaim
Nothing matters more than an "Origin Story." How a hero was born, raised and came to be the protagonist of a story is critical to a reader, a fan, a movie goer. Especially if you want to write or film a sequel. This is true of religion as well; how Gautama became the Buddha, how Abram became Abraham, Jesus became Christ and Mohamad a Prophet are all foundational stories that cement each of our faiths, make us and our path unique. But what if that "Origin Story" of ours didn't have its origin in the story we were originally told?

"Chillin’ With the Villains"
It’s easy to love the “good” people, cuz they are just like us. But the “bad” ones, what do we do then?
Rev. Dr. Emily Brault complicates this narrative, and challenges our ideas of what Love looks like in the real world.
Rev. Dr. Emily Brault received her PhD from Vanderbilt University and has been in prison ever since. She currently works as a Chaplain for the women’s prison in Oregon, and has a few more years yet before she paroles. Her experiences as a Chaplain, an academic, and a human being lend her a unique perspective into the many challenges of faith and love.
