Moral Injury, Soul Repair and Love for Our Neighbors

When: Fri., March 22, 6 p.m. 2019
Price: Free.
Like love, moral injury is both universal and infinitely diverse. The suffering it names comes from broken ties of love for self and others. It results from the anger, mistrust, shame and disillusionment that accompany the collapse of our core moral foundations under the weight of harm or evil that cannot be integrated into our identity. The harm may come from authorities or people we trusted. It also can come from actions or failures of our own that have harmed others. This lecture explores Rita Nakashima Brock’s work on soul repair and offers ways to heal, touching on the recent controversies in Virginia. Dr. Rita Nakashima Brock is Senior Vice President for Moral Injury Programs at Volunteers of America and a Commissioned Minister of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). A native of Fukuoka, Japan, Dr. Brock was the first Asian American woman to earn a doctorate in theology (Claremont School of Theology). An internationally distinguished lecturer and award-winning author, she is a pioneer in the study of moral injury.
