Grace Forum Online with Daniel Darling: Courage and Civility

March 16, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Daniel Darling, the spokesperson for National Religious Broadcasters, an organization for members of Christian media, wrote a column for USA Today about his decision to get vaccinated against COVID-19. He wrote: “There are not many things in the world today that are worthy of our trust, but I sincerely believe the Covid-19 vaccine is one of them…as a Christian and an American, I was proud to get it.” The column cost him his job.  

Author of A Way With Words: Using Our Online Conversations for Good, and now director of the Land Center for Cultural Engagement at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Darling helps shape conversations on faith, ethics, public policy and other cultural and philosophical issues. He has said: “I think you can have both courage and civility at the same time…this incessant need to fight and tear people down for sport is really unhealthy.”

Each year the cathedral chooses a theme for inspiration and reflection, and in 2022 our theme is connection. In a time when even a public health emergency is divisive, and public discourse is coarse beyond belief, join Dean Malcolm Clemens Young for a conversation with Darling about how to get back to connecting courage of conviction with courtesy. 

The Forum will also be broadcast on Facebook, and posted on our Youtube channel for viewing following the livestream.
