On Being: Public Theology Reimagined
“Public theology is about the virtues that accompany the work of theology, not just the ideas. It means connecting grand religious ideas with messy human reality. It means articulating religious and spiritual points of view to challenge and deepen thinking on every side of every important question.This project is about exploring a new generation of public theology for this century. We inhabit a world in which spiritual life is a fluid and dispersed, multi-faceted, and multiply articulated thing. Seekers and thinkers outside the bounds of religious tradition — scientists and artists, social entrepreneurs and poets — are illuminating the ancient questions of what it means to be human and who we are to each other”.

We tell those stories and how the complex reality of immigration weaves its way into the narrative”.
