Dr. Courtney Cowart: Sacred Activism

On Sunday April 25, 2010 we welcome Dr. Courtney Cowart to Trinity. Cowart is a theologian, a survivor of September 11, and the author of An American Awakening: From Ground Zero to Katrina, The People We are Free to Be, in which she describes her role in both Ground Zero and Katrina recovery and how a new generation of young social entrepreneurs offer hope for sacred activism.

She is a laywoman who holds a Th.D. in Spiritual Formation and American Church History from General Theological Seminary and has worked in philanthropy at Trinity Church Wall Street and in preparing candidates for ordination at General. In July 2009, she was invited by the Presiding Bishop to preach at a General Convention Eucharist.
