"Togetherness in a Time of Division" - Chris Haw, author of Jesus for President and From Willow Creek to Sacred Heart, will share stories of a movement of lay Christians of all denominations all around the country,known as the New Monasticism - a way of sharing life, prayer, and action together. How can we today come together, in faith and in community, in a way that doesn't just reinforce our culture's polarization? This involves not only stories of faith and action, but also contemplation of how we can combine both prophetic action and critique, as well as mercy, patience, and forgiveness. The presentation will be at 10:00am in the Session Room.
