The criminal justice system in the US is more and more organized around punitive notions of justice. Violence is often met with violence. Yet in the Twin Cities we have lots of experience with restorative practices that draw on principles of nonviolence. Join us on September 30 at 11:30 a.m. for a panel discussion with Brenda Burnside, Randi Roth, and Mary Hess where we will introduce the concept of restorative justice. Sponsored by INVITE at Luther Seminary (Integrating Nonviolence into Theological Education) and Interfaith Action. RSVP for the zoom link.

There are so many stories to share of how you have been God’s hands and feet in the world during this time. We know that 90 minutes will be too short to share so much of what you have experienced, however, we pray it offers a few moments to connect with your fellow interns and learn from each other as you prepare for the next steps in your faith journey.
