“At the heart of my work is a belief in the sacred connectedness of all beings and creation itself, a fire in my belly for justice that finds resonance in the Hebrew prophets, and a social analysis that connects the dots of the evil triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism, articulated by Dr. King, recognizing that the work of undoing racism, greed and violence begins in my own heart.”
