Conversations for the Common Good

We regularly host events featuring lectures, performances, and onstage conversations with writers, artists, musicians, and leading thinkers. Featured guests are asked to articulate the important ideas and relevant viewpoints that inform their work and creative process. These conversations are offered in hope that all who attend will be enriched and challenged by the distinctive perspective that faith can add to our lives.
