It brings a leading practitioner and a leading theologian, each dedicated to a life of Christian reconciliation, to share their stories and wisdom at Duke Divinity School.

Participants will have the opportunity to discover what it means to follow a Savior who was considered a child of an unknown father and who broke down ethnic and cultural boundaries. They will explore how this mixed-heritage mestizo Jesus is calling people into a new human family based on love of God and love of neighbor.
