The William Temple Foundation and Radical Hope

Date: April 26, 2024

Yesterday afternoon I headed to the UK. This is a short trip. But I was invited to participate in the conference organized by the William Temple Foundation about Radical Hope. It is being held at Liverpool Hope University. In the evening, there will be a book launch for book that I edited with Professor Simon Lee called The Serendipity of Hope.

It is a privilege to have the opportunity to reflect on the theme of Higher Education and Hope. And I appreciate the opportunity to step outside the administrative questions that are the focus of my service as a leader of VTS and GTS. I find it life-giving to have the chance to think about underlying trends in education and society.

I will be back on Sunday. So, if I appear a little tired next week, then you all know why.
