The Center for Religious Wisdom and World Affairs partnered with the University of Washington Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies this month to sponsor a presentation and discussion titled “Wounds of Love: Faith-Based Responses to Homelessness in Seattle.”
The Jan. 22 event was moderated by James Wellman, chair of the Jackson School’s Comparative Religion Program and Global Christianity project, and featured a presentation by Center scholar Paul Blankenship, followed by reflections from a panel of community partners, and concluding remarks from Center Director Manuel Mejido (pictured), who also led a general discussion with attendees.
The Center for Religious Wisdom and World Affairs, which seeks to integrate the scholarly examination of pressing social problems with solution-oriented responses initiated by communities of faith and their organizations, was pleased to co-sponsor this opportunity for a public dialogue with scholars, faith-based practitioners, students and community partners.
