Donna Sequeira

August 20 - Donna Sequeira:  Pride and Witness -- Spiritual Practices for Today's World

Queer, disability scholar and activist, Eli Clare writes, “Witness pairs grief and rage with remembrance. Pride pairs joy with a determination to be visible.” From Clare's writing and Donna’s reflection, we will discuss how pride and witness might be spiritual practices that we need at this moment in history. As a disabled person who suffers with chronic pain, we will look at how we use pride and witness on a personal level to help us cope. What pain in your own life or in your communities might be transformed through witness and pride.

Donna Sequeira, M.Div. ministers, as she is able, to those outside (and inside) religious communities through spiritual direction, teaching and celebrating life transitions. She is a graduate of Starr King School for the Ministry and is the former Social Justice Coordinator for the Southeast District. Donna lives in Richmond with her spouse, Margaret, and their daughter, Mollie.
