CLGS Lavender Lunch: HIV, Theology, & Spiritual Practice
December 4, 2012 at 1:00pm to 2:00pm
PSR Mudd Building, Room 100
Rev. Jim Mitulski, Director of Worship at Pacific School of Religion, will address the theological and ethical question as raised over the last quarter century in regard to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Because HIV/ AIDS have disproportionately affected social communities deemed expendable by the dominant culture, it reveals where there is racism, sexism, classism and homophobia in every society in which it is found.
Rev. Jim Mitulski has been a pastor for 27 years, has served churches in New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco, and is currently the pastor of New Spirit Community Church (www.newspiritchurch.org) which meets on campus at the PSR chapel, and which is affiliated with the United Church of Christ, the Disciples of Christ and the Metropolitan Community Churches. His education includes a BA from Columbia University, an M.Div. from PSR, an honorary doctorate in sacred theology from Starr King School for the Ministry, and a Merrill Fellow at the Harvard Divinity School. He really loves being a minister and is happy to listen to students, staff or faculty.
