Courageous Faith Summit
a virtual gathering of people of faith and moral conscience
We need courageous faith leaders today…
Faith leaders stand at a crossroads in North America today. As people of faith and moral conscious, we can either sit idly by and allow hate, greed, and fear to define us or we can channel the heart of our tradition and speak truth to greedy power, love to angry hate, and hope to unfounded fear. The Courageous Faith Summit provides a critical look at where we are now and how we get to a more sustainable and equitable future. Through interviews with influential North American faith leaders in activist-oriented congregations, the Courageous Faith Summit equips virtual leaders with the audacity, connections, and practice advice to be active leaders in an emerging movement for change.
