DignityUSA's 22nd Biennial Convention to be held in Seattle on July 2-5, 2015 is just one year away. The theme of the Convention is "God's Love: Enduring as the Mountains, Endless as the Sea." When we gathered last year in Minneapolis, our theme was "Let Justice Roll Like a River," and we looked at our call to social justice. In Seattle we will look at how God's Love sustains us and grounds us in our advocacy work. We will look at different ways we experience and nurture God's Love and presence in our lives.
The 2015 Convention keynote speaker will be Sister Simone Campbell. Sr. Simone is the Executive Director of NETWORK and organizer of the "Nuns on the Bus" tours. She is an advocate for peace-building, immigration reform, healthcare, and economic justice. She has recently authored the book "A Nun on the Bus: How All of Us Can Create Hope, Change and Community." Sr. Simone will be speaking on "The Spirituality That Grounds Advocacy."
The convention program committee is working on lining up the other speakers for the Convention. The topics we will explore are "Life in God: Daily Encounters with the Divine," "Compassionate Living," and "A Spirituality of Sacrament."
