Zoom, please register to receive Zoom invite

Gather for a special two-hour discussion for students, staff, and faculty from all three Lewis & Clark campuses. We will spend our Wednesday evening after the election guided by the wisdom of the late Vincent Harding,  who was the chairperson of the Veterans of Hope Project at the Iliff School of Theology in Denver. Listen to the podcast or read the transcript beforehand, and then gather together around the virtual dinner table to discuss, connect, and act. Harding said in the interview with Tippett, “How do we work together? How do we talk together in ways that will open up our best capacities and our best gifts? My own feeling that I try to share again and again, Krista, is that when it comes to creating a multiracial, multiethnic, multireligious, democratic society, we are still a developing nation.”

Whoever wins the presidential election, Harding’s question calls out to us in 2020: How do we work together? How do we talk together in ways that will open up our best capacities and our best gifts?

 Nov. 4: Vincent Harding, “Is America Possible?”

“Vincent Harding was wise about how the vision of the civil rights movement might speak to 21st-century realities. He reminded us that the movement of the ’50s and ’60s was spiritually as well as politically vigorous; it aspired to a “beloved community,” not merely a tolerant integrated society. He pursued this through patient-yet-passionate cross-cultural, cross-generational relationships. And he posed and lived a question that is freshly in our midst: Is America possible?” - Krista Tippett
