Braver Angels Convention Deepens Civic Skills

Paul Lambert, Wheatley Institute Religion Director, was part of a panel discussion during a breakout session at the 2024 Braver Angels National Convention. The convention was organized in an effort to find ways to disagree better especially in politics and civic virtue.

Lambert’s panel focused on faith communities and how they can both be faithful to their convictions and be forces for depolarization. The conversation included various religious leaders—a Southern Baptist leader, an Episcopal bishop, a Jewish interfaith organizer, and a Catholic priest. Participants learned how faith communities can draw on their own traditions and principles to help Americans both stand for their convictions and be peacemakers amidst a polarizing election year.
