Do we stop caring when there's no hope? Moving past the headlines with personal stories that create a human connection, an emotional connection.
Spiritual life is a way of dwelling with perplexity - its purpose as well as its perils, its beauty as well as its ravages. ~@KristaTippett
Since many of our U.S. readers and listeners are engulfed in the final weeks of a presidential campaign, it's only fitting that I share this vibrant, literary exchange between Krista and and a former guest, Terry Tempest Williams, who tweeted:
Democratic Vistas by Walt Whitman. How about reading this during the election returns for measure.
@TempestWilliams "I know nothing grander.. the triumphant result of faith in human kind, than a well-contested American national election."...
On science and theology, interviewing Marilynne Robinson, and more on what what Krista's thinking about this week.
"With Alice Rivlin at 81 and Pete Domenici at 80 at Brookings this week — a merger of power and softness I've seen in the wisest people." ~Krista Tippett reflects on her recent interview for the Civil Conversations Project.
“Another level of your life opens up when you recognize that you have a life that is inside.”

Krista stops by public radio station WDET, while in Detroit. They're doing interesting on-the-ground reporting and community building.
As we began to spread the word to close friends about our name change from Speaking of Faith with Krista Tippett to Krista Tippett on Being, we were invited to speak to an audience of colleagues here at American Public Media earlier this month.
With a sly wit and a good deal of humor, Tutu ribs Krista about the apportionment of dried fruit. Listen in to this lively, playful exchange.
We were pleased to see The Daily Beast featured the New York Public Library’s backstage clip of their event with Krista last week. It’s a short snippet, and, with a bit of prime-time drama-like production, it effectively captures the substance and tenor of the event.
His answer to the audience question, “Is religion potentially dangerous?” is one that’s often asked in the context of the seemingly intractable conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.
Our hard-working host is traveling this week for speeches she has given in both Salt Lake City, Utah and Fort Collins, Colorado. As part of these trips, she’s done interviews with a few local public radio programs. What I enjoy about listening to these interviews is hearing Krista talk about the history of Speaking of Faith, the approach and scope of the program, and her thoughts on a range of religious and ethical issues. While these are things I’ve heard her say before, each time I hear them anew I am inspired about the work we do.
Over these past five years, I’ve been utterly charmed with the effort that’s put into producing a weekly national program. We’ve been making great commitments to reveal this part of the process through releasing Krista’s unedited interviews, videotaping editorial sessions and face-to-face interviews, and blogging about the correspondence we have among our staff and the ideas that inform our roles.
But, commitments require Krista (and sometimes staff) to speak at public and private events — ranging from speaking engagements at our funders’ board meetings to lectures at local public radio stations’ fundraising events. These forums can be quite inspirational and enlightening, revealing another aspect of Speaking of Faith’s mission to reach larger and more varied audiences.
