Faith & Life Forum

The Faith & Life Forum of the Memorial Church explores matters of faith and public life. Each week we explore themes such as love, justice, suffering and salvation in relation to the world in which we live. We learn from scholars and practitioners of religion, religious intellectuals, writers, activists and artists whose work captures conceptions of the sacred and wrestles with the mysterious dimensions of life. Through lecture and dialogue, our mission is to enrich our faith by expanding our awareness of the important and pivotal role religion plays across space and time.
