justice and the pursuit of truth and goodness donna adlerIn this presentation, lawyer and scholar Donna Adler will provide reflections on justice in light of the extraordinary events of 2020, which were certainly unanticipated by most. As a society, it is imperative to meditate on the relationship of justice to the pursuit of truth and goodness, and to contrast the pursuit of justice with the pursuit of power. Donna will bring in various texts to supplement her presentation, including Isaiah 59, Ezekiel 34, and Abraham Lincoln's August 12, 1861 "Proclamation of a Day of Fasting."
