Remembering September 11, 2001: One Woman’s Story
By Lisa Anderson
September 8, 2011
Westina Matthews is a woman of powerful faith and spirit whose personal story of literally being in the eye of the story on September 11, 2001 bears witness to the necessity for forgiveness and reconciliation despite the difficulty a commitment to do so entails.
Westina chronicled her experience and the particular struggle of personal and social transformation it sparked in the 2011 edition of Sacred Journey: The Journal of Fellowship in Prayer.
Westina Matthews, PhD, worked on Wall Street for over twenty-four years. A member of Trinity Wall Street, she is now an author, spiritual director, retreat leader, inspirational speaker, and adjunct professor at General Theological Seminary whose practice fosters contemplative living through “holy listening.”
Auburn is pleased to claim her as sister, friend and ‘troublemaker’ for love and justice.
