IFPL 2013 editThe 2013 Institute for Faith and Public Life (IFPL) will engage leaders of Christian congregations and other Christian institutions of social services in vocational discernment and theological grounding regarding God’s call to a public witness to justice, compassion and hope. The three major foci of the IFPL will be the:

  • consideration of the theological and ethical aspects of Christian public witness
  • development of a congregational missional identity as “public church”
  • the nurturing of a spirituality for Christian public presence
