2019 Role-based Tracks

While opening and closing ceremonies will help us enter and exit as one body, our first and last thematic program blocks will provide for role-based conversations and trainings. Having attendees start and end with the same group gives some continuity, and offers role-relevant content to utilize in their unique context. Tracks will meet on Thursday from 10:00 AM to noon and on Saturday from 3:00 to 4:00 PM.

  • Liberal Religion Beyond Optimism
    Thursday 1:30 PM –  2:30 PM
    Skinner House
    For generations, liberal pulpits have rung with grand sermons about progress “onward and upward forever," yet our people struggle to make sense of both their own suffering and enduring injustice all around us. What resilience lies beyond our historic optimism? How can that resilience guide us forward in authentic ways?
