This resource is the website associated with “On Being”, a weekly radio show hosted by Krista Tippett, a graduate of Yale Divinity School. The website represents the broadcast with blogs and posts that allow a listener and non-listener to explore topics in greater depth. What are the topics? They range widely. The website delves into conversation about religion, meaning, and ethics. There is a spirit of exploration; you will want to walk through this web portal with an open heart. If you do, you will be rewarded with an opportunity to engage your moral imagination in a world where the questions are as important as the answers. The many blogs and video clips are tools for adult education and sermons, as well as many other contexts where a congregation seeks to function as a learning community. Diversity is a value in terms of this resource. Singer Roseanne Cash is featured one week, the next Bishop Desmond TuTu. Serious explorations of urban renewal are posted alongside information about the latest from neuroscience.
