Grace Forum Online with Daniel Heischman: What Schools Teach Us About Religious Life

April 6, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In his book What Schools Teach Us About Religious Life, The Rev. Daniel R. Heischman, Executive Director of the National Association of Episcopal Schools, finds schools to be important guideposts in the process of understanding religious life in this country, and the degree to which they are able to balance both tradition and contemporary reality can teach us a great deal about not only how to be more fluent in our religious literacy, but how to be better citizens in an increasingly complex world. 

Each year the cathedral chooses a theme for inspiration and reflection, and in 2022 our theme is connection. Join Dean Malcolm Clemens Young for a conversation with Heischman about what Episcopal school life and culture tells us about the contemporary American religious landscape and how to strengthen our connection to a more spiritually alive world. 

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