on Faith, Ethics and Global Society

Learning to Walk in the Dark
with Barbara Brown Taylor

September 30, 2015
7 p.m. Alice Jepson Theatre, Modlin Center for the Arts

***Due to extensive water damage in Alice Jepson Theatre, this year's Forum will be relocated to Camp Concert Hall in the Booker Hall of Music. Please park in the Modlin Center parking lot. The reception will still take place after the Forum in Booth Lobby of the Modlin Center. Ushers will be available to guide guests the night of the event.

Spirituality is often shaped by moments of joy, insight, and answered prayers. However, it is also shaped by moments of adversity, uncertainty, and discontent. For many, the desire to grasp the good moments, the moments of light and ease can often overshadow the richness that can be found in the dark along our uneven paths of spiritual growth.

Barbara Brown Taylor will challenge us to look at the darkness anew, to find goodness out of uncertainty, and in doing so, find renewed strength within ourselves. She calls it a “spirituality of darkness” and welcomes us into a journey full of wonder and grace, reassurance and redemption.

This event is free and open to the public. No reservations are required. For more information, contact Emily Cobb, director of multifaith initiatives, at ecobb@richmond.edu or (804) 289-8500.
