    from Festival of Faiths Added

    Find out more at http://FESTIVALofFAITHS.org Fr. Richard Rohr called the Festival of Faiths "The Sundance of the Sacred". In the 2015 Festival of Faiths 'Sacred Journeys & The Legacy of Thomas Merton' (May 12-17 Louisville, KY) speakers will be asked to answer, in 7-minutes, two fundamental questions posed by Thomas Merton: 1) What are you living for? and 2) What is preventing you from living that more fully? Krista Tippett is an American journalist, author, and entrepreneur. She created and hosts the Peabody Award-winning public radio program and podcast On Being. In 2014, Tippett, was awarded the National Humanities Medal by U.S. President Barack Obama for “thoughtfully delving into the mysteries of human existence. On the air and in print, Ms.Tippett avoids easy answers, embracing complexity and inviting people of all faiths, no faith, and every background to join the conversation." Krista grew up in Oklahoma, the granddaughter of a Southern Baptist preacher. She studied history at Brown University and went to Bonn, West Germany in 1983 on a Fulbright Scholarship to study politics in Cold War Europe. In her 20s, she ended up in divided Berlin for most of the 1980s, first as The New York Times stringer and a freelance correspondent for Newsweek, The International Herald Tribune, the BBC, and Die Zeit. She later became a special assistant to the U.S. Ambassador to West Germany. Krista left Berlin in 1988, the year before the Wall fell. She lived in Spain, England, and Scotland for a time, then pursued a M.Div. from Yale. When she graduated in 1994, she saw a black hole where intelligent coverage of religion should be. As she conducted a far-flung oral history project for the Benedictines of St. John's Abbey (pdf) in Collegeville, Minnesota, she began to imagine radio conversations about the spiritual and intellectual content of faith that could open imaginations and enrich public life. In 2007, Krista published her first book, Speaking of Faith. It is a memoir of religion in our time, including her move from geopolitical engagement to theology and the cumulative wisdom of her interviews these past years. Her book, Einstein's God, illustrates some of the important ways the program and her vision have continued to evolve. Krista's two children are at the center of her life. She also loves cooking for her children and their friends, radio plays, beautiful writing, great science fiction, cross country skiing, and hot yoga. On Being http://www.onbeing.org/ On Being is a Peabody Award-winning public radio conversation and podcast, a Webby Award-winning website and online exploration, a publisher and public event convener. On Being opens up the animating questions at the center of human life: What does it mean to be human, and how do we want to live? We explore these questions in their richness and complexity in 21st-century lives and endeavors. We pursue wisdom and moral imagination as much as knowledge; we esteem nuance and poetry as much as fact. Thanks to 'Compassionate Louisville': http://www.compassionatelouisville.org FESTIVAL OF FAITHS presents STORIES FROM THE ROAD, a web shorts series. If you had 5 minutes to transmit what being alive means to you, what would you say? We are asking people from all walks of life to share the distilled wisdom they gained in the school of human existence, the personal lessons they learned on the journey through life. Every journey is a Sacred Journey. #SacredJourneys More about the Festival of Faiths at: http://FESTIVALofFAITHS.org Watch more STORIES at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwQFCmBuyjI&list=PLEP1tGCx3X_Tz3-sFgP7SZwVKsms-iKsS
