Confrontational Faith and Beloved Community: Rekindling Hope and Restoring Trust
 
Hope and trust are difficult virtues to foster and sustain in America today. A resurgence of blatant acts of racism and racial injustice as well as a long history of racial oppression and deep systemic racial inequities greatly contribute to this difficulty. The Reverend Dr. Guy Nave believes that despite America being in the midst of a painful and long overdue period of racial reckoning, hope and trust are still possible. Not only are they possible, but they are also prerequisites for establishing "Beloved Community"—a society based on justice, equal opportunity, and love of one's fellow human beings. Nave asserts there is a specific role people of faith must play in rekindling hope and restoring trust. People of faith need to demonstrate what Nave calls, “confrontational faith”—faith that actively challenges racial inequities and injustices. Confrontational faith is rooted in and motivated by a strong conviction that Beloved Community is not only possible, it is a divine imperative. In this seminar, Nave will explore the role and function of faith and the power of hope and trust for creating Beloved Community.
