Observations from a Front Row Seat on the Evolution of Faith and Life in our Time"
November 10, 2009
In her Peabody-award winning public radio show, Tippett pioneers a new model of intelligent discussion on religion, ethics and spiritual meaning. She will share what she has learned as she has approached difficult and important issues of our time, across boundaries of public life and inner life, science and religion, belief and non-belief.
Tippett is a journalist, former diplomat and creator of the Peabody and Webby award-winning program “Speaking of Faith.” She received a master’s of divinity from Yale University and is author of the critically acclaimed book Speaking of Faith – Why Religion Matters and How to Talk About It.
