Rev. Dr. Matthew Croasmun, co-author of the NYT best-selling book, Life Worth Living: A Guide to What Matters Most, will be in conversation with colleague and friend, Rev. Lisa Lynne Kirkpatrick, and Rev. Dr. Brett Swanson on Saturday evening, May 4, 2024 at 6:00 p.m.
This event is free and open to the public. 

As director of the Life Worth Living program at the Center for Faith & Culture at Yale Divinity School, Croasmun seeks "a world in which deep reflection on flourishing life is central to education, spiritual formation, and public discourse." Matthew Croasmun and his co-authors, Miroslav Volf and Ryan McAnnally-Linz, teach the most in-demand course in Yale College’s Humanities Program: Life Worth Living. Students describe the course as "life-changing," and an outside researcher's preliminary analyses show significant effects of the course on students’ sense of meaning in life. This event promises to bring some of these ideas to the Milwaukee area public.

"Life Worth Living is transcendent ... the only book you need to find your way from where you are to where you are called to be.”  - Kelly Corrigan, New York Times bestselling author and host of Kelly Corrigan Wonders and PBS’s Tell Me More
