Saying Yes & Saying No: a Workshop with the Rev. Kathleen McTigue

On Monday, October 16, 2017, the Rev. Kathleen McTigue (SKSM graduate, Honorary Degree Recipient, and Executive Director of the Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice) presented a workshop entitled “Saying Yes & Saying No.”

When we consider all of the wrongs and injustices in the world around us, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed; it can be hard to know how best to channel our time and energy. We often try to do it all, and as a result our efforts end up being “a mile wide and an inch deep”. This workshop introduced a discernment process based on contemplative practice, as a way to listen for where we feel most called to say “yes” — and then to empower that affirmation by how we say “no”.

Starr King would like to extend a very special thanks to Kathleen for sharing her perspective on how we can counter oppression more effectively.
