KRISTA TIPPETT : A TAFT LECTURE
Tuesday, March 13, 7:00 PM
Our Taft Lecture series presents Krista Tippett, host and executive producer of “On Being” and winner of the 2014 National Humanities Medal for “thoughtfully delving into the mysteries of human existence.” Tickets are available via Eventbrite.
Ms. Tippett will be speaking on: The Adventure of Civility
Our young century is awash with urgent questions of survival, of meaning, of how we structure our common life and who we are to each other. And yet it seems we are more divided than ever before – unable to listen and speak across the differences we must engage to create the world we want for ourselves and our children. Krista Tippett’s public radio show and podcast, On Being, brings a vast range of voices to the animating questions at the center of life: What does it mean to be human, and how do we want to live? Her Civil Conversations Project has focused these questions on public life, in practical terms, for communities from the deep south to Harvard Law School. She will speak with us about how we can all begin to create the conversations we want to be hearing, where we live – and how communities of faith bring important wisdom to this 21st Century calling.
