Reclaiming the Body as Holy Through Dance at the Commission on the Status of Women

Last week I had the privilege to film a conversation between myself and Dr. Valli Batchelor, a World Student Christian Federation/ World Council of Churches delegate to the 57th Commission on the Status of Women on behalf of Ecumenical Women.  In this brief video we discuss the role of dance in Valli's work at CSW57 and her upcoming WCC publication on clergy sexual abuse of women, "When Pastors Prey."

Dustin is currently a vicar at the Lutheran Office for World Community and Saint Peter's Church in Manhattan, having recently completed his second year of a Masters of Divinity program at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. While seeking ordination in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, his focus is on the intersection between worship, service and justice building in de-centralized faith communities unencumbered by a traditional church building. In his free time, Dustin likes playing frisbee, hiking and pretending to know how to sing.
