To transform society to honor the human worth of every person, not just those with money and/or power, requires courage, hope, intention, creativity and more. Also required is persistence. The civil rights era song, We Shall Overcome, is one expression of the commitment to persist despite odds.
The image of water, over long periods of time, cutting through rock to form rivers, is another expression of the power of persistence.
Our speaker, Jone Johnson Lewis, will reflect on what it takes to persist, sometimes against great odds.
Jone Johnson Lewis is serving as the Interim Clergy Leader of Brooklyn Ethical. She has been an Ethical Culture Leader for 26 years and shares the Society’s interests in both social justice and personal and interpersonal transformation.
