A panel of provocative thinkers and leaders of San Francisco’s interfaith community will discuss the role faith and the sacred play in modern society. Is the faith found in nature any less or more powerful than faith felt in a house of worship? Can communities save us when hierarchies fail? Must a religious community depend on a physical structure for its reality? In this eye-opening conversation, an esteemed group of panelists will shed light on what it means to have faith in the 21st century, as well as push us to rethink what we hold as truly sacred in our own lives.
