The Joan and R. Wayne Kraft Memorial Lecture

A Fierce Tenderness: Discipleship as Empathy

Through witness and word, in scripture and by attention to exemplary lives, we’ll explore what it means to practice a discipleship defined by “other-centeredness,” one rooted in gentleness, hospitality, nonviolence and love and characterized by self-awareness and a deep respect for human dignity.
