"Approaching the Ledge: Why America needs a crisis of faith — and why, in order to save religion, we must be willing to let it die."

Joshua DuBois will explore the idea that we live in a time where faith exists without crisis, a coddled religious environment where God is not trusted to do God-sized things. As a result, some of the most significant social, political, and moral challenges we confront as a nation remain unsolved. Profiling leaders who have embraced deep crises of faith in the past — from the Civil Rights Movement to the present day — Mr. DuBois will plot a crisis-driven way forward that might finally address some of the most intractable problems we face.

Joshua DuBois,  former Special Assistant to President Obama and Executive Director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships and author of The President's Devotionalwill present  the 2014 William Belden Noble Lecture. Free admission.
