2019: Week 7 Speaker Books

Week Seven :: August 3–10

Grace: A Celebration of Extraordinary Gifts — A Week in Partnership with Krista Tippett and “On Being”

Be it emotional, physical or spiritual, grace takes many forms. It exists in the way we treat one another, the way in which we move through the world, and the way in which we use our gifts, our grace, to lift up others.

  • Grace, as defined by religious terms, is the means by which we receive an unearned gift, one we’re not worthy of. Beyond religion, what does grace look like in the secular world?
  • When is grace difficult? In talking across differences? In compromise? In the face of adversity? We look at the moments in which grace is most needed.
  • How can we go out into the world, actively moving with more grace throughout our own lives?

Interfaith Lecture Theme :: Grace: A Celebration of Extraordinary Gifts

There are many ways of defining or explaining the idea of Grace. Grace is thought to be something we receive, something we give, something we are, and something we do. In this week we will hear stories from four traditions – Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Humanism – exploring how each tradition perceives, interprets, and lives Grace.
