Literature & Spirituality / Krista Tippett: The Mystery and Art of Living

  • Battell Chapel 400 College Street New Haven, CT, 06511 United States (map)
The art of living is another way to describe the practices of faith and its virtues: the being and doing of spiritual life that our world desperately needs.  Intrigued by the unexpected themes that arise in her life of conversation, Krista Tippett addresses religious wisdom revealed in fresh and compelling language from new angles.  In this virtue framework, beauty is a core value that transcends boundaries, enhances the vitality of life, and points towards God.  Scientists, artists, and spiritual thinkers insist on the virtue of improvisation, which is tied to our inevitable experience of failure. Virtues – so closely bound to our flaws and failings – lie at the heart of the mystery of the human capacity to be present to the flawed and failing world.
The Peabody Award-winning broadcaster, New York Times bestselling author, and recipient of the 2014 National Humanities Medal returns to Yale, where she earned the M.Div. degree in 1994.
Reading followed by book-signing.  Presented in collaboration with the Yale Divinity Student Book Supply.
