Last year, the Office of Inclusive Excellence launched the annual diversity lecture to bring thought leaders to Seattle Pacific University who can inspire and challenge individuals to engage the theological, cultural, and institutional aspects of this work. The exploration of this year’s theme, “Justice and Shalom,” seeks to practice grace-filled and spirit-led intercultural and ecumenical listening and, in doing so, seek a full understanding of God's vision of Shalom for all people and all creation. It also seeks to explore the role of Christian orthodoxy, orthopraxy, and orthopathy in the work of justice, and expand our imagination of what can be different coming out of this pandemic time and find application for our Gospel hope. This year’s speakers include, Rev. Dr. Mae Elise Cannon, Executive Director, Churches for MIddle East Peace, Rev. Dr. Grace Ji-Sun Kim, Professor of Theology, Earlham School of Religion, and Dr. Randy Woodley, Distinguished Professor of Faith and Culture; Director of Intercultural and Indigenous Studies, Portland Seminary.
