Video: Jim Corbett – Subversive Goatwalker

Sanctuary Movement co-founder and Quaker theologian Jim Corbett (author of Goatwalking and Sanctuary for All Life) gave this lecture for the plenary sessions of the 1986 Friends General Conference gathering at Carleton College in Northfield, MN. Pat Corbett, wife to Jim, speaks concerning her involvement with the sanctuary movement.

“There are a few individuals in every age who live outside their own time. Galileo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Sor Juana de la Cruz and … Jim Corbett. The great prophets often dome from some dusty, out-of-the-way, God-forsaken corner of the world … like Bethlehem or, in Jim’s case, the Sonoran Desert hinterlands. God willing, Jim Corbett’s Sanctuary for All Life will be considered in two hundred years as holy writ.”–Rose Marie Berger
