Topic: Bearing Witness
Robert Ertman is a Zen teacher (White Plum Asanga, lineage of Maezumi, Roshi) and also a member of the Zen Peacemakers . Most years he attends the ZPI Bearing Witness retreats at Auschwitz and with the Lokota in the Black Hills (our own genocide that we do not acknowledge). This May he’s going to Alabama to Bear Witness to Racism in America. If we, the UU Congregation of the Chesapeake would be interested in a Zen “sermon” on bearing witness & not looking away, he would enjoy giving it.
