Conversation with Miroslav Volf
November 18, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for an engaging conversation with renowned theologian, public intellectual, and Grace Farms Foundation board member, Miroslav Volf. Volf will discuss the Life Worth Living Program, an effort he designed to help universities and the broader culture engage the most important question of our lives: What makes life worth living?
Life Worth Living, a course led by the Yale Center for Faith and Culture, will be offered for free at Grace Farms on Thursday evenings from February 2nd through March 9th, 2017. The course covers a diverse range of philosophical and religious traditions in order to help participants develop habits of reflection that will equip them to answer this fundamental question. Applications for course participation will be available through our website beginning November 18th.
Miroslav Volf is the Henry B. Wright Professor of Theology of Yale Divinity School and author of more than 15 book, including the recently-published Public Faith in Action: How to Think Carefully, Engage Wisely, and Vote with Integrity. He has received numerous awards for his work and is the founding director of the Yale Center for Faith and Culture (YCFC), whose mission is to “critically examine and promote practices of faith which advance authentic human flourishing and the global common good.”
