Norms, Values, Habits, Practice for an Ethical Future

Broadcast on August 18, 2022
With Rev. Robyn Henderson-Espinoza, PhD
Hosted by Carmen Acevedo Butcher, PhD

How do we live out practices that ensure ethical futures? Scholar-activist, thought-leader, teacher, public theologian, and ethicist Rev. Robyn Henderson-Espinoza, PhD, helps us connect the dots between theory and action to identify the ways that the deep spiritual work of transforming self can help steward the logic of liberation. By imagining the world as it can be, focusing on relationships, and combining contemplation and action, an ethical future can emerge.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • Imagination is the best strength we have to create social change
  • Ethical futures emerge relationally
  • Another possible world is upon us when we combine contemplation and action

Rev. Robyn Henderson-Espinoza, PhD

Founder, Activist Theology Project

Robyn Henderson-Espinoza, PhD, has been described in a myriad of ways — as a scholar-activist, scholar-leader, thought-leader, teacher, public theologian, ethicist, poet of moral reason, and a word artist. Among these ways of describing Robyn, they also represent a visionary Transqueer Latinxthinker who has spent two decades working in the borderlands of church, academy, and movements, seeking to not only disrupt but dismantle supremacy culture and help steward the logic of liberation. They enflesh a deep hope of collaborating in these borderland spaces where their work seeks to contribute to the ongoing work of collective liberation. Robyn is the founder of the Activist Theology Project, a Nashville-based collaborative project that seeks to work with the dominant culture and produces a curriculum at the intersection of scholarship and activism.

Robyn was named 1 of 10 faith leaders to watch by the Center for American Progress in 2018. Robyn has been featured in fashion magazines and appeared on many different podcasts. As a scholar-activist, Robyn is committed to translating theory to action, so that work in the borderlands reflects the deep spiritual work of transforming self to transforming the world. As the founder of the Activist Theology Project, Robyn is committed to the work of social healing through public theology initiatives, and writes & creates both academic & other valuable resources, including digital resources. They are the author of Activist Theology, 2019, and Body Becoming: A Path to Our Liberation.
