Who Are We?  American Values Revisited

 

In an era of instantaneous information and ideological gridlock, what values still hold us together as a nation and as a human community? In public life we move from one crisis to another, conflicts embedded in perennial tensions – individualism vs. community, secularism vs. religious practice, liberty vs. fairness, diversity vs. unity, choice vs. tradition. How does the citizen – how does the individual psyche – navigate competing values, claims, and interests? What do humane values look like today, whether in public or private?
 

You and your guests are invited to join our distinguished panel of Yale scholars on Saturday, June 8, 2013 as they grapple with these questions from different vantage points and examine what it means today to pursue the common good.  Yale faculty include Miroslav Volf, Henry B. Wright Professor of Theology and Director of the Yale Center for Faith and Culture; and Mary Clark Moschella, Roger J. Squire Professor of Pastoral Care and Counseling.  Also speaking will be Claire Gaudiani, Adjunct Professor in the Wagner School of Public Service at New York University and an authority on the history and economics of American philanthropy; Henry G. Brinton, a graduate of Duke University and Yale Divinity School, and is the senior pastor of Fairfax Presbyterian Church in Fairfax, Virginia; and William Galston, the Ezra K. Zilkha Chair in Governance Studies and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.  The seminar will be moderated by Linda Lader M.Div. '08, President of the Renaissance Institute and Associate Pastor of New York Avenue Presbyterian Church, Washington, D.C.
