"Tell me a story!" we hear children say. Children crave stories, and we fool ourselves by thinking we outgrow that need. Through stories, we learn who we are, what our world is like, how other people behave and think, and what makes for better or worse ways of living in the world. In After Virtue, the philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre asserted that a person “can only answer the question ‘What am I to do?’ if I can answer the prior question ‘Of what story or stories do I find myself a part?’” (216). Yet we live in a time when our stories are fragmented, depleted, and too seldom heard. Tonight, we'll pay attention to story.

This lecture is part of our Summer Lecture 2016 series.

Susan Phillips is Executive Director of New College Berkeley in California and a perennially popular teacher in Regent’s Summer Programs. As a sociologist and spiritual director, she teaches and speaks around the world, and regularly leads retreats for churches and clergy groups.

Dr. Phillips will be teaching the class "Contemplative Listening in Spiritual Friendship and Direction" from June 27 - July 8 as part of our 2016 Summer Programs. Learn more at rgnt.net/summer.
