How does your faith connect with your public life? Do you embrace a private faith, nurtured but shielded from storms? Or do you seek a vocal and muscular faith? In a world torn by religious headlines and acts of violence, many of us struggle with how to live in communion with others, particularly with people of different faiths. In his book A Public Faith: How Followers of Christ Should Serve the Common Good, professor Miroslav Volf writes about the risks of both an idle faith and a coercive faith. In a city of transplants and transients, passionate convictions, and an abundance of pollsters, pluralism surrounds us. Come and hear this celebrated theologian and Yale professor teach and preach on what binds us together. The Georgetown Presbyterian Church, your sanctuary in the city.
These events are open to everyone. Please note we are an urban church in a residential area, so you should allow time to find on-street parking.
