Seeking Wisdom and Social Healing in a Time of Division
In their work with the “On Being” show and the Civil Conversations & Social Healing Project, Krista Tippett and Lucas Johnson engage religious and spiritual leaders as well as teachers, neuroscientists and other thought leaders to explore the wisdom that is needed in order to “master the art of living.” In this conversation they will be asked to share some of the main insights they have gleaned as a result of listening to and talking with many different people through the years. In particular, they will discuss how this wisdom can be put into action and why it is so important to the different types of healing that we need in our country. This 90 minute conversation is sponsored by the National Institute for Civil Discourse (NICD) and the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church (NYAPC). Krista and Lucas will be interviewed by Keith Allred, the Executive Director of NICD, and Rev. Heather Shortlidge who is Transitional Head Pastor at NYAPC. They will engage Krista and Lucas in an informal discussion of a number of different topics and lead a conversation in which all four of them will participate. During the final portion of the program, the two interviewers will also raise some questions that have been submitted by those in the audience. The conversation will close with comments from Krista and Lucas about the main points they want to emphasize from the discussion. All that register will be invited to submit questions. A zoom link to join the conversation will be sent a day before to all those that register.
