Faith is too often treated either as a matter of public morality or as an entirely private matter. The Cathedral’s ministry of public theology seeks to offer an alternative point of view.
Our faith has something important to contribute to our thinking about questions of public importanceThe Church needs to find a way to be in respectful conversation with the broader community about such questionsPeople are actually interested in the riches of Christian scholarship, both historical and contemporary
