What is activism?
Standing where you are and telling the truth as you have discerned it and doing that truth nonviolently
Walking with others in movements for justice and peace
Being an aware and engaged presence where you are
We are not all called to the same acts of protest
We are all called to protest – to witness – to act up
Where we are!!
If you are in a classroom,
Are you doing pedagogical activism?
If you are in a pulpit,
Are you doing homiletical activism?
If you are painting,
Are you doing artistic activism?
If you are writing a book or giving a lecture,
Are you doing intellectual activism?
The question is . . .
What are you doing to act up – to protest – to witness where you are?
