The Adventure of Civility:
Speaking Across Our Differences
April 2, 5:00 p.m.
Although this event is sold out, you are invited to register for our waiting list. Available tickets will be released on March 20. We will contact you in the order in which your registration was received.
Our 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 NPR 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.
Tippett will speak here at First Presbyterian Church on Sunday, April 2, as the 2017 Willard Lecture Featured Speaker. Previous year’s Willard Lecture Series events have been standing-room-only and we expect a great deal of interest in Krista Tippett’s talk. This lecture series is supported by the Willard Endowment, which enables First Presbyterian to offer lectures that deepen and enrich the spiritual lives of the Charlotte community. Tickets are $10.
