INTEGRATING FAITH AND PUBLIC LIFE

A workshop based on the book Claiming Your Voice: Speaking Truth to Power [Liturgical Press, 2022] by Norvene Vest.  Her book received honorable mention in the ‘Faithful Citizen/Religious Freedom’ category of the Catholic Media Awards this yearIn her book she integrates our relation to public life in America with Benedictine spirituality for the benefit of the common life we share in society.  Troubled by a contemporary urgent question: Has American polity lost the ability to critique itself about its foundational purpose and its ongoing integrity?  Applying Hebrew prophecy and Benedictine principles, as well as drawing from her graduate degrees in Political Theory, Christian Theology, and Mythology/Depth Psychology, Dr. Vest shows how to restore that essential political and spiritual perspective in practice.

 

NORVENE VEST is an Episcopal laywoman and Benedictine Oblate returning this summer to her home monastery of St. Andrew's. She has written six books on Benedictine Spirituality for Oblates and for people living in the everyday world outside the cloister. She is an internationally recognized writer and speaker.
