Raised in an atheist home, Leah Libresco Sargeant wasn’t seeking the answers of a divine being, rather she sought the nature and form of truth itself. Through a debate club at Yale University her ideas of faith, God, and Christianity were challenged and eventually she came to realize that truth is much larger than her atheism allowed.
Leah tells the story of how her friends gave her room to reconsider. Although arguments may feel like an invitation to aggression, we are called to love the truth and our friends fiercely. With the right preparation, we can do right by them both.
This talk will be followed by an exclusive discussion with Bishop Robert Barron and Leah on the rise of disaffiliation and why we need to argue many people back into Christianity. This discussion is exclusive to Word on Fire Institute
members and will be live-streamed through the Institute’s online platform.
