Price Lectures: The Discipline of Joy
Sun., March 8, 15 and 22, Forum
Over three Sundays in March, we will explore that under-examined and even “suspect” dimension of the Christian experience: joy. Each session will be led by a guest with a unique perspective on the subject: Christian Wiman, poet and professor of Religion and Literature at the Yale Divinity School; Jonathan Reckford, CEO, Habitat for Humanity; and Brenda Cassellius, the new Superintendent of Boston Public Schools.
