Does Faith Divide Us?: Faith and the Common Good in a Polarized Age

Russell Moore and Tahera Ahmad

April 30, 2019 at 7:30pm

Parkes Hall

The 2019 Veritas Forum at Northwestern University will examine the role of religion in our society – a society marked both by religious pluralism and, in recent years, increasing cultural and political polarization. Are our religious differences a contributing cause of this polarization? Are there resources within our faith traditions that can bring healing and cooperation? How should citizens with deeply held beliefs enter the public square and engage with their neighbors who may not hold to similar beliefs? Can religious people, motivated by their particular faith, serve the common good? And when we cannot find consensus, how can we disagree well? Our present cultural moment highlights the urgency of these questions, and we look forward to an engaging and enlightening conversation.
