The battle is far from over for justice, truth in America

Horizons - The demands for unity we keep hearing, especially from the perpetrators of violence, fall short for me. I have struggled with imagining reconciliation, a value and a practice that I espouse in most of my other work.

Young people of Generation Z are awakening us from our slumber

Horizons - A global dearth of true leadership has marked 2020. But throughout this year, I have also experienced a surging of hope within me, due to the efforts of young people around the world.

The future of religious life means real work on racism and a focus on vocation, formation

Horizons - It is imperative that religious congregations encourage and support newer members.

Lament and hope go hand in hand

Horizons - The cry of lament is for every Black woman, past and present, who has been forgotten, sidelined and/or erased.
