The Cathedral of St. Luke and St. Paul is excited to host Listen & Speak: Conversations in Faith and Culture, November 2-3, 2017.

Join Bishop Lawrence at the Listen & Speak Conference November 2-3

Bishop Mark Lawrence“The reality that we are in a rapidly changing cultural context in which to do ministry is so universally recognized today that it hardly needs to be mentioned—were it not for the simple fact that so many of us—both ministers and congregations— continue to function as if nothing has changed. Last year’s “Listen & Speak” event raised intriguing questions for me, which I continue to reflect upon. This year’s event promises to be equally provocative. For surely one of the biggest contributors to the evolving environment for ministry is the empire of technology and social media and this is exactly the arena the always thought-provoking Andy Crouch will be addressing. I encourage you to join me at the Cathedral on November 2 & 3 for as many sessions of “Listen & Speak” as you can make. I’ve already put it on my calendar!” --Bishop Mark Lawrence


Conversations around Christian faithfulness in a shifting culture. Technology has emerged as one of the dominant forces in our world. Learn more.

Speaker: Andy Crouch

Before arriving at the Foundation in 2017, he was an editor and producer at Christianity Today for t12 years, including five years as executive editor. Beginning with Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling (2008), his books have interpreted culture, power, and technology in the light of the Christian doctrine of the image of God. His journalistic writing has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, TIME, and several editions of Best Christian Writing and Best Spiritual Writing. Watch video of Andy Crouch.

Singer: Liz Vice
