Week Seven :: Aug. 5–12

Interfaith Lecture Theme :: Spirituality in an Age of Anxiety 

Theologians have begun calling the time in which we are living ‘The Age of Anxiety,’ and describing an immersion in an ocean of fear and insecurity. In this week we will strive to identify the presenting causes of anxiety in our times, and in previous times, and to discern what secularists, religions, and spiritual modalities can offer as antidotes.
