Description

The Office of the Chaplains is exctited to welcome the nationally reknowned author, editor, speaker, musician, and spoken word artists CHRISTIAN PIATT. He will speak about his new book, postChristian: What's Left? Can We Fix It? Do We Care?

Fearless and provocative,postChristian offers a roadmap to the future of faith, beginning with an unflinching examination of the church today. Piatt examines the "seven scandals of Christianity e pride, certainty, lust, greed, judgment, fear, and envy. Piatt writes that these vices have made Christianity "responsible for, or at least complicit in, some of the worst atrocities in history. eBut he doesn't advocate abandoning religion altogether, as he equally examines Christianity's seven virtues"humility, faith, love, charity, mercy, courage, and justice. He writes, "There are few, if any, other places in our world that place such emphasis and value on interdependence, story, unity, hope, justice, and radical, selfless love. e/p>

All are welcome to the Courtyard Cafe at 7pm on Tuesday, November 4th, in order to hear from Christian Piatt.
