Living the Values Retreats
Take some time away from daily busyness to contemplate Trinity's core values—faith, integrity, inclusiveness, compassion, social justice, and stewardship—and how you express these values in your everyday living. You'll come away renewed and inspired, and ready to live your values more fully in the world.
Social (In)Justice with Pádraig Ó Tuama
Saturday, October 31, 10am–3pm | Online | Free
In today’s world—with today’s concerns and injustices—what does it mean for a faith community to hold fast to a practice, belief, and value of social justice, one of Trinity Church Wall Street’s core values? During this retreat we will look at contemporary poems and stories, biblical texts, and examples of individuals who are trying—inspired by their faith, their pain, and their hope—to ensure systemic change and meaningful improvement in the lives of those affected by social injustice.
Led by Pádraig Ó Tuama, a poet and a theologian from Ireland. From 2014–2019 he led Corrymeela, Ireland’s oldest peace and reconciliation organization. Since 2020 he has been presenting On Being’s poetry program Poetry Unbound. He lives in Ireland and writes, speaks, and teaches about conflict, poetry, and religion.
Pádraig Ó Tuama is no stranger to Trinity. In 2018, he spoke at the Trinity Institute Values in Action conference and preached at the memorial Holy Eucharist service honoring those who died in the Pulse nightclub shooting.
