'The Adventure Of Civility' with Krista Tippett (Virtual Lecture)

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 shape our presence to this moment we inhabit and begin to create the conversations we want to be hearing, where we live.

The Speakers' Series is a new initiative for the Institute For the Study Of Human Flourishing, designed to bring in high-profile speakers and allow them to deliver public lectures on topics related to the theme "Faith and Civic Virtue in Public Life."
