Grad Dessert with the Chaplains: Wednesday, September 14th,
· In an era when religious faith features prominently in public life, can we imagine a public role for religion that falls victim neither to the violent assertion of faith nor the liberal restraint of religious reasons in public debate?
· How can we envision modes of professional leadership in which the practice of faith is integral to vocation and broader participation in public life? Can such a vibrant practice of faith take seriously both the reality of pluralism and its consequent fact of multiple incommensurable world-views, while nonetheless envisioning a distinctive role for faith in fostering life’s flourishing?
The conference, interdisciplinary by design, seeks answers to these pressing questions for those working in the fields of law, business, ministry, medicine, in the academy, and in other spheres of life. Speakers and presenters include: Nancy T. Ammerman, Professor of Sociology of Religion, Boston University; Floyd Flake, Senior Pastor, Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral, Jamaica, New York; Mike Volkema, Chairman, Herman Miller, Inc.; Stephen L. Carter, Professor of Law, Yale University; Wendell L. Griffen, Judge, Arksansas Court of Appeals; Robert H. Henry, Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit; William H.
