Please join Fr. Ben for a 6-week discussion on the New York Times Best Seller Becoming Wise: An Inquiry Into the Mystery and Art of Living by Krista Tippett. Free copy of the book for the first 10 participants.
Peabody Award-winning broadcaster and National Humanities Medalist Krista Tippett has interviewed the most extraordinary voices examining the great questions of meaning for our time. The heart of her work on her national public radio program and podcast, On Being, has been to shine light on people whose insights kindle in us a sense of wonder and courage. Scientists in a variety of fileds; theologians from an array of faiths; poets, activists, and many others have all opened themselves up to Tippett’s compassionate yet searching conversation.
In Becoming Wise, Krista Tippett has created a master class in living for a fractured world. Fracture, she says, is not the whole story of our time. The enduring question of what it means to be human has become inextricable from the challenge of who we are to one another. She insists on the possibility of personal depth and common life for this century, nurtured by science and “spiritual technologies,” with civility and love as muscular public practice. And, accompanied by a cross-disciplinary dream team of a teaching faculty, she shows us how. Join us this Sunday after the 8am service in the 2nd floor conference room.

-Fr. Andrew will lead a discussion on former Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams’s book: Being Christian.

We will fuel our flight with the recent revision of Bishop Payne’s very readable work on what it means to be an Episcopalian!
