About: Durham County Library will host Divine Dialogues: A Conversation on Faith, Trauma and Healing at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, April 11, at Stanford L. Warren Branch Library, 1201 Fayetteville St.

Honoring the legacy of resilience and hope that Pauli Murray expressed for the Church, the Pauli Murray Project is engaging in a community dialogue program called Divine Dialogues: A Conversation on Faith, Trauma and Healing. Collecting quotes from local faith practitioners and participants and drawing from Pauli Murray’s own words, the Pauli Murray Project will have two dialogues where we will wrestle with the state of faith, the role of trauma in the formation of identity and cast our visions for what sacred space could be.

“I had been taught all my life to revere the church and its teachings; now I could not condemn the church as sinful when it denied me the right to participate as fully and freely in worship of God as my brethren. If the present church customs were justified, then I did not belong in the church and it became a stumbling block to faith” — Pauli Murray

“True Community is based upon equality, mutuality and reciprocity. It affirms the richness of individual diversity as well as the common human ties that bind us together.” — Pauli Murray
