In the midst of growing fractures in our culture, political polarization, and anxieties about the future, faith-inspired imagination and faith-informed action can address these challenges of our times. Join us for a compelling conversation with William Lamar IV M.Div'99, pastor of Metropolitan A.M.E. Church in Washington, D.C. and contributor to Faith and Leadership at Duke Divinity School. His presentation will discuss how communities can cultivate sustaining relationships to benefit the wider world. With audience participation, the discussion will consider opportunities to nurture communities that have potential to thrive.

Registration fee per person includes appetizers, wine, and other beverages.
