For the last few years, The Trinity Forum has been enriching Nashville through “evening conversations” with some of the most engaging thinkers and speakers I’ve ever heard, including painter Mako Fujimura, poet Dana Gioia, Lincoln biographer Ron White, and mathematician John Lennox (who attended C. S. Lewis’s last lectures at Cambridge!).
On Thursday, March 30, The Trinity Forum will host another evening conversation with John Inazu, a Professor of Law and Religion and Professor of Political Science at Washington University in Saint Louis. He will speak on “Confident Pluralism in a Turbulent Age.”
To quote from the Trinity Forum’s website,
“During this Evening Conversation, Dr. Inazu will examine the state of religious freedom and challenges to pluralism in our polarized age. He will offer ways of learning to live with our deep differences over politics, race, religion, sexuality, and other important matters, by strengthening constitutional commitments that protect difference and dissent, and by embodying civic practices in our speech, action, and relationships.”
Registration is $10 and includes excellent hors d’oeuvres at a pre-event reception. These evenings are a lot of fun. If you’re in Middle Tennessee, I commend this event to you.

Jonathan Rogers is the author of The Terrible Speed of Mercy, one of the finest biographies of Flannery O’Connor we've ever read. His other books include the Wilderking Trilogy–The Bark of the Bog Owl, The Secret of the Swamp King, and The Way of the Wilderking–as well as The World According to Narnia and a biography of Saint Patrick. He has spent most of his adult life in Nashville, Tennessee, where he and his wife Lou Alice are raising a houseful of robustious children.
