“Spirituality is the highest form of political consciousness.”
These words rang throughout Rev. Dr. Thom White Wolf Fassett's presentation, “Politics of Religion—Native Spirituality & Christian Practice” at the Weber Memorial Lectures Friday, March 9, 2018, at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA.
He presented through the lens of his personal story as a member of the Seneca Nation and his father’s Lakota traditions. His humility was evident as he shared stories of those elders who nurtured his gifts and mentored him while he ministered in Alaska.
The lecture was followed by Dr. Frank L. Crouch, Vice President and Dean of Moravian Theological Seminary and Dr. Bryon Grigsby, President Moravian College conferring the Honorary Degree of Doctor of Divinity on him for his “decades of scholarship, service, faith, and ongoing international work for justice and human and civil rights.”
