Religious institutions are at crossroads as they consider their futures in a world that seems to have less and less time or patience with culture wars or faith communities caught up in their own survival. Our planet has already changed, and we need to see how to develop faith communities and practices that are relevant to our times.
In this lively and informative lecture, Rabbi Kate Palley, Rev. Scott Kershner, and Peterson Toscano explore the many ways people of faith and religious institutions can build community and serve the public right now and over the next 50 years as we experience vast changes in the world around us. They will highlight the diverse roles faith communities have played during times of crisis, and outline various models that can transform our places of worship into vibrant, engaged, community hubs for learning, support, disaster relief, and most importantly–hope.
