Description

The eminent church historian Martin Marty once observed that “there is no news in the news today that is not somehow related to religion news.”   Some of the most critical issues in our national dialogues rest at the cross section of religion and public policy.  Everywhere we turn, the issue of “the faith angle” keeps coming up.  Many members of the mainstream media recognize this as well.  They embrace their role as responsible stewards of a national conversation, and realize that a deficit of knowledge of their fellow citizens’ religious convictions can hamper their coverage.  Our speaker will explain how his “Faith Angle Forum” program for journalists aspires to correct this imbalance and lack of perspective.
