Spiritual Wisdom in an Age of Isolation

In communities across the world, the Winter holidays mark for us a moment of transition or transformation.

For many people, this year’s celebrations will look and feel different in this pandemic age.

This Round Table asks what new forms of wisdom 2020 has provided while considering what we hold sacred and what we may have previously taken for granted.

The activist leader Malala Yousafzai noted that “when the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.”  We often believe leaders require large audiences.  But, whether intentionally or unintentionally, each of us leads every day — in our lives, alongside others, and in the world.

Our September 2020 Round Table encourages us to question our leaders and asks us to step up and embraces our own leadership qualities.

How have acts of injustice appealed to your values and prompted you to act?
